I haven't actually been to this theatre. I think it closed during the time we were in the area in 1960. The walking tour website says: "First opened as a movie theatre in 1930 by the Sliman family, the theatre closed in 1960 and stayed dormant and unoccupied until 1994, when a total restoration began following its donation to the City by the Sliman family."
The New Iberia website says: "State Representative Bo Ackal initiated efforts to acquire funding to preserve this "Art Deco" gem and restore it to its useful purpose for the community. As a result of these efforts, the City received a State Capital Outlay Grant in 1995 for the proposed project and work began in 1997. The doors of The Sliman Theater for Performing Arts opened in 1998, since then the theater has established itself as a quality venue for performance art.
"The Sliman Theater is currently host to the widely-acclaimed musical concert series entitled Louisiana Crossroads, presented by the Acadiana Arts Council."
I took the picture from the parking lot next to the theatre, and some of the pavement was mosaic tile probably from a former building that stood there.
