A facelift of the Fondren historic district is almost finsihed.
Historic Capri Theatre, new restaurants, and bowling alley are opening soon.
Capri Movie Theatre
Built in 1949, Capri Movie Theatre was closed for many years.
“Oh, it’s been so cool to see this part of Jackson revitalized, because it’s just a lot of great history happened here, and I am so glad they are bringing it back,” said Jesse Dear, former employee.
“The neighborhood has really rallied around this, and the city of Jackson really for the last four years I’ve been involved in this I keep hearing, you know, the first movie I saw was at the Capri, or I remember this, I remember that. So, it’s got a lot of sentimental value,” said Robert St. John, project manager.
Fondren historic district should repoen by February of 2022.
