Jackson Municipal Auditorium
A large civic auditorium in a crumbling Southern downtown. In 1996 the theatre was renamed for Thalia Mara, a dancer and teacher who moved to Jackson in the mid-70s to create a professional ballet company and formed the USA International Ballet Competition.
We'll know we've turned the corner when we hear a lot less "This used to be..." and a lot more "this is going to be." (Joe Biden)
