Opening in 1929, the Hattiesburg Saenger Theater originally served as the premiere movie palace, bringing the world of moving pictures to the Hattiesburg area. With admission at only six cents, audiences were enamored by the massive chandelier and the sounds of a 778-pipe Robert Morton organ. Now, more than 80 years later, the Saenger Theater often returns to its movie palace roots by bringing films to life on the big screen.
The Saenger Theater is a Hattiesburg Convention Commission Facility. Since 1991, the Hattiesburg Convention Commission has been developing and operating tourism-related facilities for the Hattiesburg area. For more information, visit www.HattiesburgConventionCommission.com.
