Long Center/Mars, Lafayette

The 1921 Mars is a beautiful part of downtown Lafayette. The Mars is more subdued than many of the theatres we visit, as it was built for performing arts and did not show movies until 1929. It was donated to the city in 1977 and was meticulously restored in 1999 by Conrad Schmitt studios.
