GREENVILLE, AL — Two local residents are starting up a unique alternative to the local multiplexes, West End Movies.

Richard and Julia Fowler, owners of Solutience, an information technology and systems integration provider, will open West End Movies at 640 South Main St. this month.

West End Movies will screen classic movies, cartoons, documentaries, and old newsreels at its location near Falls Park.

The goal is to offer “another attraction for people visiting Greenville’s beautiful downtown,” Richard Fowler said.

Now this is an idea I like. I’d like to see more theatres do this.

I don’t know if it’s going to work in a place like Greenville, Alabama but I do like the idea and the ambition of the owners.

So this is a building that was never a theater before?

No mention was made of format and from the picture in the newspaper story, it looks like they will be showing videos.

This in not an article about Greenville, Alabama. It is a different Greenville.
