Broadway Across America

The Saenger is here to recreate the luxury and grandeur from a time gone by. Originally built in 1927 for a historic $2.5 million (roughly $34 million today), the atmospheric theatre has housed performances of all kinds from silent films, to movie showings to the top Broadway hits of today.

Destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Saenger reopened in 2013 after a $53 million revitalization project. The theatre has been restored to its 1927 beauty, featuring the original color scheme as well as carpeting, lighting fixtures and marquees replicated from the originals. Elevating the experiences of our patrons beyond the nostalgic memories of the recent past is the magic of the Saenger Theatre.
