|Home: BigScreen Journal - Oak Grove, LA: Fiske Theatre Renovations Featured on KNOE Segment|
The Fiske Theatre in Oak Grove, Louisiana was featured in a video segment on KNOE Channel 8 News on August 19, 2012. The theater is undergoing some renovations following a conversion to a Digital Cinema Projection system.
Renovations at the historic Fiske Theatre are underway and should be complete within a month.
"In 1950, Mr. Donald B. Fiske built the present building...and at the time it was the premier, most modern, and well-equipped theater in the southern region of the United States," says Adam Holland, President of Holland Entertainment. The Fiske Theatre is now owned by the West Carroll Chamber of Commerce and operated by Holland Entertainment.
Last year, the theatre made major upgrades from film to digital and now the building is being revamped to match.
The 50's style seats have been torn out to make way for plush new ones, and the entire building is getting a new paint job. Chamber fundraisers and donations are funding the makeover which they call "Operation 2012."
