Delta Theatre

111 N. 3rd Street
Monroe, LA
Seats 600

The former Delta Theatre is now just a shell in the long-abandoned downtown of a small Southern town. It was, supposedly, the last theatre built in downtown and was decorated in Art Moderne style. However, from the presence of bricked-in windows and the early 20th/late 19th century appearance, it probably had a previous life in what was once a bustling industrial area near the Quachita River. There is no stage or dressing space and it was probably too small to ever have been a live theatrical venue. (Cinema Treasures)

We should not be ashamed to acknowledge truth from whatever source it comes to us, even if it is brought to us by former generations and foreign people...there is nothing of higher value than truth itself. (Ya'qub ibn Ishaq al-Kindi - Islamic scholar, c.801-866)
