to the Coliseum Civic Center
90 years ago (July, 1924) the palatial, multi-purpose Coliseum
Theater celebrated its opening in downtown Corinth, Mississippi.
The Coliseum has been and remains today the most monumental theatre
space in Corinth and the surrounding area.
Built in the
mid 20s by self-styled architect Benjamin Franklin Liddon, the
Coliseum has long been integral to the cultural development of
Northeast Mississippi as well as being architecturally significant
in its city and state.
In the city,
as a major congregation space and physical reminder of the richness
of the city and countys past; and in the state, as a breed
of shelters for culture built in a day when concern for quality
was manifested in peoples reverence of the arts.
