Liberty Theater renaissance

The Cajun, Creole and swamp pop music cranked up 29 years ago at the Liberty Theater, but in recent years the attendance has be anemic.
A normal night’s crowd is about 50 people.
Even the building fell on hard times. Earlier this year the city spent about $68,000 to stop leaks and mold.
“The mold is completely gone,” Fontenot said.
Eunice Mayor Scott Fontenot estimates remodeling the theater will take another $32,000.
“I know the potential is there,” he said. “I think it is a matter of marketing this correctly and getting some good bands.”
