MOBILE, Alabama -
Friday night was opening night for the Saenger Theatre, well kind of.
 
It's an attempt to bring life back to the historic theatre in downtown Mobile. The City of Mobile took control of the facility back in March after declining revenue. Saenger Night live served as the big kickoff of what's to come.  
 
"They really need to start booking some more stuff down here it's a beautiful facility and it needs to be used," said Ryan Balthrop, who performed Friday night.
 
It's not just a one time thing. Every other Friday there will be something going on at the Saenger. That's good news for downtown businesses.
 
"The block party that their creating, and that they'll be having every other Friday night, is something that we're very excited about. They're projecting numbers between 500-600 additional people to downtown Mobile," said Matthew Golden, Co-Owner of Loda Bier Garten.
