Campus Theater in Milledgeville, GA reborn as college playhouse
MILLEDGEVILLE, CA — Possessing a varied history, and once a part of the Martin chain (later Carmike), the Campus Theater will now serve as the home of the theater department of Georgia College. Though the exterior has been restored, the interior now houses a bookstore, coffee house, and a black box theater.
The building closed as a theater in 1983, though it was still used as private offices for years after that.
Georgia College bought the building in late 2008 from owner Randall Hattaway and applied for a Georgia Higher Educational Facilities Authority grant from the state to fund its renovations. The school became one of the colleges in Georgia to receive money from the grant, receiving nearly $7 million to complete the work, Bowen said.
