Following a big makeover, Shreveport’s historic and beloved Municipal Auditorium is set to reopen in grand fashion.

The reopening of the Municipal Auditorium happens Thursday, April 3. At 4:30, a ribbon cutting will officially reveal the new look, which includes new seating inside the venue, new windows and shades, new air conditioning and several other cosmetic repairs.

Members of Mike McSwain Architect, which worked on the Municipal Auditorium and Annie McDearmont of SPAR will be on hand at the reopening.

The renovation has also brought the facility into compliance with the accessibility requirements under The Americans With Disabilities Act.

Admission is free, and we expect a big crowd will show up to see firsthand what’s been done to breathe new life into the one-of-a-kind venue.

The Municipal Auditorium, located at 705 Elvis Presley Avenue in Shreveport, was built between 1926 and 1929. The Muni (as it’s lovingly referred to by locals) built a name for itself when it hosted the Louisiana Hayride. It is still regularly used for plays, Broadway shows and music concerts.
