This Abandoned Arkansas Theatre Was Once The Showplace Of The South
The Saenger Theatre in Pine Bluff once hosted stars like Harry Houdini and Roy Rogers. The theatre still stands but is still waiting for some much needed remodeling. Let’s walk through the aisles of this iconic location for today’s photo tour.
This tour is brought to us by our friends over at AbandonedAR. They travel to forgotten locations all over the state to preserve these places through historic documentation.
This Saenger Theatre is closed to the public. The property is monitored 24/7 so please, no trespassing.
