Saenger Theater restoration to be unveiled

Over the years, thousands have attended performances at the Saenger Theater in downtown Biloxi, but next week, Saenger fans will see dramatic changes at the 75-year-old showplace: The City of Biloxi on Tuesday night will raise the curtain on a theater that now features brand-new seating, newly restored walls and ceiling in the main auditorium, and new carpeting throughout the theater.

The facelift represents the most significant improvements in an initiative that has taken eight years and $2.5 million.
