Construction of Robinson Film Center 60 percent complete

Robinson Film Center executive director John Grindley said construction of the downtown Shreveport facility is 60 percent done. They hope to finish by March 1, 2008. A grand opening gala is planned for May 3, 2008.

The 48-seat theater is taking shape very quickly. It's much deeper than it looks in this picture.

The 138-seat theater anchors the facility.

The upstairs bistro will have a balcony overhanging the Texas Street sidewalk.

It's a three-floor facility, plus a basement.

Among the last things to take shape will be the facility's facade. Expect a digital marquee and digital movie posters. You can see the balcony overhanging the sidewalk.
