New Orleans Casino Theater



NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans will this week allow bars to open at 25% capacity as it further eases restrictions aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

  • The Orleans Hotel & Casino The flair and flavor of the famed 'Big Easy' meet the fun and dazzle of Las Vegas at this unique property. At The Orleans Hotel & Casino, you can celebrate Mardi Gras 365 days a year. To relax, guests can visit Spa Orleans or lounge poolside with a frozen cocktail.
  • When a new Orpheum Theater was constructed in 1924, just a few blocks from the first, the old Orpheum was sold to the Saenger Theater group. They re-named it, giving it the name of the first two theaters on that site, the St. Charles, and made it a combination movie house and live stage theater. The theater was home to one of.

Harrah’s New Orleans has long sought a true theater to compliment the casino and other entertainment options at the downtown New Orleans location, and it looks like that time has finally come.

Harrah’s filed plans with the city to renovate a portion of the casino in to The Fillmore Theater, a new live music and entertainment theater that will be managed by Live Nation.

The project consists of a 35,000 square foot interior renovation to the second floor of Harrah’s Casino and a new entryway facing Canal Street.

The project may actually be two theaters in one, which is typical of Fillmore’s in other cities. A main room that would hold 2,000-3,000, and another club room that will hold ~450. Live Nation will use the theater to bring shows to New Orleans that are currently too big for the House of Blues, which they also manage.

The Fillmore brand originally started with the Fillmore Auditorium, a music venue that opened in San Fransisco in 1954. Live Nation acquired the rights to license the venue in 2007. Since then, Live Nation has expanded the brand to other cities around the country, including clubs in Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, Miami, Charlotte, and Washington D.C.

New Orleans-based Manning Architects and Philadelphia-based Ewing Cole are the architects. According to Ewing Cole’s website, were also the designers of Fillmore Philadelphia. Ryan Gootee General Contractors, L.L.C. is the general contractor.
