Introducing "The Block" in Historic Fondren

EntSun News/11028500
JACKSON, Miss. - EntSun -- Historic charm meets night on the town at "The Block" in Jackson, Mississippi.

Anchored by the legendary Capri Theater, "The Block" features five unique dining and entertainment venues that create a one-block, one-stop shop for a night of fun in Jackson's Fondren district.

"Bringing together these five concepts allows us to support small businesses while offering locals and visitors a totally unique experience they can only find here in Jackson," said Jason Watkins, one of the developers of "The Block". "We look forward to welcoming everyone to Fondren to make this a summer to remember at 'The Block!'"

"The Block" is home to:

The Capri Theatre

The Capri Theatre is Mississippi's only dine-in movie theatre, featuring an exclusive, full-service food and cocktail menu delivered right to your seat. In the heart of Jackson, this historic venue strikes the perfect balance of preserving the old and embracing the new. The building has been restored to include the original architectural features while adding state-of-the-art projection and audio technology.

Fondren Yard

The latest addition to "The Block", Fondren Yard, located directly behind The Station, is a can't-miss hangout spot in Jackson this summer. Throughout the day, Fondren Yard will serve as "Downtown Fondren's green space," with lawn games, lounge areas and free entry for all.

On special occasions, the space will transform into a live music venue and sports watch party destination with its own shipping container bar & concession stand in the back and VIP booths off to the side. Plus, Fondren Yard can also be rented as a memorable setting for private events and parties.

The Station

There's more than meets the eye at The Station. What appears to be a retro gas station is actually home to a from-scratch pizza joint and bar complete with indoor and outdoor seating serving up the best pies in Jackson. Guests can enjoy live music and lawn games on the State Street patio all summer.
