Lights, camera, action: Minden 1911


In this modern era of streaming services, the old time concept of a local movie theater seems almost obsolete. Still the theaters in Shreveport do a good business and we can look back and see that for many years, the local movie screens were an integral part of Minden. The earliest indication of a movie theater in Minden appears in 1911, when a theater opened in the area today occupied by Gorilla Tech. The theater was short-lived but started a period approaching a century when Minden had at least one local theater.
