A brief recap of SOPAC’s Hurricane Ida recovery journey:

SOPAC was forced to close its lobby, mainstage and in-person box office for six months, from September 2021 to February 2022, while remediation and restoration was underway following Hurricane Ida’s destruction. Although mainstage performances resumed in February 2022, renovations continued through to May 2022. Now, SOPAC has a new stage and orchestra pit, freshly painted walls and modern carpeting throughout all three floors of the building, including the Cinema Lab movie theaters

We can confidently say, SOPAC is so back!
