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.
When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight, nor for present use alone; let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for ... and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! this our fathers did for us." (John Ruskin)
