“Back in the day when Hollywood studios made “pictures,” they also owned their own theatres to show them. This was the case of the historic Joy Theatre, which was opened in 1947 by Universal Studios in New Orleans, but the venue had fallen into a sad state of disrepair after Hurricane Katrina.   . . . .”

    The late Ty Tracey was a wonderful host for the New Orleans Conclave. The Joy was rundown at the time, so glad it was saved! How is the Saenger Theater?
