The Perrien Theatre was opened by 1914. It seated 330 and closed in 1929. It had reopened by 1931. It was remodeled in 1940 to the plans of architect Henry M. Freier. It was still open in 1957. The site is now a vacant lot.

Local residents indicate the old church near this site was the theater. Others put the location at 4738 Chene Street which is now an empty lot.

Went there many many times. They had a special matinee on Saturdays for kids. I think it cost 9 cents for admission. My Dad gave me a quater and believe it or not that was a lot in the late 40's. Great memories. Coke and a bag of chips were 5 cents each. The rest was spent on penny candy. I was entertained all afternoon. I lived on Jos Campau and Alexandrine at that time. Pretty good walk for a 10 year old.

The Perrein theater was located on Chene St. near the coner of Hanncock. I lived on Grandy St. directly in back of the show from 1943 to 1948.

The Perrein was located between E. Forest and Hancock. The building that it was housed in is still there. It is a church. A park bearing the same name is located between Hancock, and E. Warren. I lived two blocks away on E. Canfield, @Chene.
