Southern Exposure 2010 announced

When the Southern Theater first opened in March of 1910 the space was mostly used to host silent movies for kids, vaudeville shows, and Swedish theater. Over the past ten decades the West Bank venue has gone on to serve as a movie theater (including a stint screening adult flicks), a venue for variety shows, and even as a garage for heavy road equipment. In the mid-1970s the Southern Theater hit its stride as a venue for dance, original theater, and local and national performances of note.

The Southern Theater will celebrate March 6 at their yearly benefit, Southern Exposure. The party will feature a cabaret show including performances by James Sewell Ballet co-founder and dancer Sally Rousse, singer/pianist Gabriel Kahane, and members of Four Humors Theater. Guests can also bid in silent and live auctions, sample wine and chocolate, and try their luck at the cakewalk contest. The after-party will round out the event with music spun by DJ Greg Waletski.

Tickets are on sale now and start at $125. For tickets and additional information, call 612.340.1725 or visit
