The iconic Saenger Theatre will reopen its doors tonight, Thursday, July 15, for the first time since October 2019. 

The theatre was originally closed after the Hard Rock Hotel collapsed on October 12, 2019. The closure was due to repairs that needed to be made to the theatre following the building collapse that happened across the street from the Saenger. While construction was going on the coronavirus pandemic hit the nation and forced the theatre to stay closed for much longer than was expected.

Nearly two years later and the Saenger Theatre will finally open its doors to patrons. This theatre has seen a lot over the years and I am so excited that it will be reopening again. Plus, the calendar of events that the Saenger released has some pretty awesome performances that I am looking forward to seeing.
