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)
