Historical Marker Text

Saenger Theatre

As a regional entertainment and cultural center, Texarkana once had a number of opera houses and theaters, including this facility built by the Saenger Amusement Co. of New Orleans. A parade and speeches by local dignitaries marked the opening day festivities on Nov. 18, 1924. Emil Weil designed the Classical Revival structure to accommodate stage productions, musical programs and motion pictures. The elaborate interior features ornamental plasterwork.
