Saturday June 23 2012,www.augustachroncile.com Front page article below the fold on MILLER THEATRE update.Plans are now under way to buy the old department store next door to expand the Miller.
Inside work still on hold,front of marquee is great.
Great looking Picture.
Frank, found a little info,THE ORGAN drive-in held 375 cars and was owned in 1956 by LUIS Maynez.
WAS this the ROCKET DRIVE-in?
Really a tacky AMC theatre to me.
Super Savers Cinemas were suppose to locate where i live, but somehow ,like over night it became a REGAL Cinemas first run house.
Good point Sam.lol.
From the picture does not to be that large of a single screen house.
So they closed a nice Jerry Lewis Theatre to peddle TRASH..Smart.Lame excuse.
It parked 410 cars and was owned in 1956 by Herbert Jones.
Great looking pictures,wonder if Theatre Booking Service handled the Features out of Omaha.
THEATRE BOOKING SERVICE out of Omaha booked movies here.
poor old theatre mgrs. always got and still it seems gets the shaft.
nice looking complex.
Book by Bill Mitchell, “BUILDINGS AS HISTORY:THE ARCHITECTURE OF ERLE STILLWELL”.
Sad . One of Erle Stillwell designs..Have a picture from Stillwell’s Collection, “POT O'GOLD"on the Marquee,Big Air Condition banner hanging in front.
Seats 400 . named after Shelby’s Favorite Music son.The State sat vacant for 30 years before locals decided to save it.
This is a Erle Stillwell designed Theatre.One of a few left.
A lot of Stillwell’s Theatres fell under the Paramount Banner in the Southeast.
Architect Erle Stillwell was born in Missouri ,but raised in Hendersonville.The Depression of the 30’s began a big collapse in his career,It was designing Movie Theatres in North and South Carolina,Alabama and Tennessee that saved his career designing 60 Theatres in this region.
Really a good read, check it out.NEWS-TIMES June 10, 2012.
The class of Moviegoer today, I can understand,Was in the Biz from 74-83.
