SpringĀ© Theatre

Opened in 1948, the Spring Theatre closed in 1982 and sat dormant for 20 years.

"Inside, bats and mold decorated dirty curtained walls, fallen acoustic tiles and mud," according to a September 10, 2007 article in the Shreveport Times.

After a tireless $100,000 renovation, the theatre was reopened on September 20, 2002. Today, it remains a popular local attraction with affordable prices.

This is my favorite place to watch a movie. Great sound, clean, cool, and simple. Reminds me of my hometown theater which is long gone. Would rather drive 45 minutes to this small town theater than 30 to a large cinemaplex. It’s off the beaten path but definitely a “must-try”.

The 1951 Sanborn shows a construction date of 1948. The entire block was built between 1948 and 1951, replacing a few wooden houses. After a paper mill opened in 1937, there was a huge increase in population (748 1920 to 6,437 1960).

A 1948 construction date means that this must be the Springhill house noted in the May 8 issue of Boxoffice that year. It was originally to be called the Orleans Theatre, and was built for B. R. McLendon’s Tri-States Theatres. It was designed by Dallas architect Raymond F. Smith. The item, which mentioned several theater projects that were then at various stages of planning or construction, said that the Orleans had “just started.” I’ve been unable to discover if it opened under the name originally announced or as the Spring.
