After the first ghost story i did about the haunted Courthouse it got me thinking, What else in Lake Charles might be Haunted? Well after just a little research these are my findings…

In the heart-pumping, popcorn-spilling world of Lake Charles, Louisiana, there’s a spot that’s more chill-inducing than a freezer door left open, and it's not your grandma's attic. No, we're talking about the Lake Charles Event Center, a place that screams "boo!" louder than a horror movie marathon at a sleepover.

Nestled snugly by the lake, since the groovy 1970s, this place has been home to more than just events and conferences. Rumor has it, the Rosa Heart Theater inside is hosting a permanent guest - a ghostly Lady in White. Now, before you think it’s just someone who took the "dress to impress" memo way too seriously, let me tell you, this lady is the real spectral deal.

Imagine sitting in the theater, munching on your popcorn, when you get this spooky feeling like someone’s watching you. Well, it's not your imagination; it's probably just our resident ghost, Elsie, checking if you're enjoying the show. Legend has it, Elsie was a bride who got ditched at the altar and decided to take a dramatic exit right off a pier that used to be where the theater stands now. Talk about leaving with a splash!

According to the tales, Elsie loves to make dramatic entrances and exits, parading across the theater balcony like it's her own personal runway.

So, if you ever find yourself in the Rosa Heart Theater feeling a cool breeze or sensing someone hovering over your shoulder, don't freak out. It's probably just Elsie, the jilted bride, keeping an eye out for the show or maybe just looking for someone to share her popcorn with. Remember, in Lake Charles, the spirits are not just in the drinks!
