Council Green Lights Orpheum Theater Restoration


The New Orleans City Council cleared the way for Thursday for the reopening of the latest CBD theater with designs on lighting up the marquee once again. The Council signed off on an ordinance that provided approval for the Orpheum Theater to clear the way for theater to come back online.


Saenger Theatre Renovation to Begin in New Year


Basking in the afterglow of the newly-reopened Joy Theater, officials closed financing on the nearby Saenger Theatre yesterday. Partners want to complete the $50 million renovation project by 2013, and will start construction in the New Year. The Saenger was first opened in 1927 at the corner of N. Rampart St. and Canal. The theater remained active as a moviehouse until federal floodwaters silenced the screen and massive pipe organ in 2005.


Joy Spotted on Canal


The lights were bright once again on Canal Street last night, as Miss Irma Thomas flipped the switch to light the sign of the newly renovated Joy Theater sign. The Theater, which went off line in 2003, received a $5 million renovation after a group of investors bought the decades-old movie house over the summer. The new incarnation of the Joy will host music, theatre, parties and movies.
