Delta Cinema Stage
11 Third Street
Classic Clarksdale movie and performance theater. Main cinema (there are two) features a live performance stage. Juke Joint Festival features a kick-off concert event on this Delta Cinema Stage every year on the Thursday evening prior to the fest itself. This venue provides a very special visual and listening arena for extra special shows such as the musical "Mosquitoville" (2010) and the North Mississippi String Band (2011). These events are purposely planned for early evening to avoid conflicts with live, nighttime blues at the jukes. Also, plan to arrive early for free lobby music and a poster signing with artist Cristen Barnard (6pm).
