Inscription.  From its earliest days, the Delmar Loop was proclaimed for its amazing entertainment. The highly regarded Tivoli Theater focuses on independent films, fan-favorite and spirited midnight specials like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Doors opened in 1924 as a live performance venue. The Delmar Hall and The Pageant now host national acts year-round. Throughout the Loop, in restaurants, coffee shops and even on its sidewalks, visitors will often hear local singers and musicians practicing their craft!

Here you can see a historic collection of theaters in the Delmar Loop including the Tivoli, The Pageant and the Varsity Theater.
 
Erected by The Loop Trolley Company.
