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)

A chorus of voices exhorts kids to study science. No one stops to ask whether it is inhumane to force adolescents to spend the bulk of their time studying subjects most of them hate. (Ted Kaczynski)
