The Saenger opened in 1928 and was touted as the grandest theatre in the South. In 2005, the theatre was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
After millions of dollars and years of restoration work, the theatre reopened with its magnificent 15th-century Italian courtyard and gardens, arched surroundings, columns, decorative moldings and blue-domed ceiling.
