The old A&G Theatre on Beach Boulevard is under contract, and the landmark building will be on the market for lease.
The Hayden family put the historic theater and a couple of adjacent lots on State Street up for sale in 2014. New Orleans developer Jim MacPhaille is in the process of buying the property for an undisclosed amount. The Haydens’ original asking price for both tracts was $1.2 million.
The A&G opened in 1927 and was built at a cost of more than $60,000. After Katrina, the vacant building had to be stabilized. The Spanish Mission-style theater has 4,800 square feet of interior space.
Any changes to the exterior of the building must be approved by the Bay St. Louis Historic Preservation Commission. It is zoned C-1 for general commercial.
