Renovations at New Orleans’ oldest theater should be finished soon, allowing the Civic to re-open by the end of the month.

The Civic on O’Keefe Avenue was built in 1906.  It’s sat vacant for decades.  Now, workers are using the latest technology available to restore the theater to its original glory.

The theater renovation will also include its enormous crystal chandelier which hung previously in the Roosevelt Hotel and was given to the theater as a gift in the 1940s.
