Originally operated as a film theatre, The Varsity Theatre has been a staple in Baton Rouge since the 1930s.

The Varsity first opened its doors in 1937, filling a variety of roles in the film-theatre industry until it’s closure in 1988.  We reopened as Baton Rouge’s premiere live music venue in 1990 playing host to both local and nationally touring artists.

The Varsity is also an ideal space to host your next social, private, or corporate event.
