Thanks again raysson,great info.
thanks raysson and Jay.
Miller sat close to 1500, while the IMPERIAL sat 881 in my days there.
Ron P the only first run theatres play A pictures Downtown were the IMPERIAL and The Miller.The Rialto was closed in the 50’s,The Modjeska would sometimes run a A picture ,but most of the time they played B pictures.I wanna say it played at the IMPERIAL because they got alot of MGM product.
Yep, you never know CTCrouch, when GCC poulled out of Augusta,Ga. They left a nice looking 8 plex,but that side of town would be nothing but problems for a theatre owner.
Well, Norman it parked 500 cars and was owned by Tri-State,nice picture,This from 1956.Motion picture Almanac.
Wow, what a story guess CHuck who wrote the intro never heard about or surely he would have included it.Nick, was that an old Boxoffice Magazine I gave you? or was it Charlie’s.
It looked like a GGC.
Thanks raysson you always have informative info.
Looked like it was something like a J-M theatre by logo, wonder if Gene Boggs is the Shopping center.
Nice looking 4 plex, noticed where the one sheets were at,If it weren’t for churches most of these old theatres would be gone.
neat story, I stood outside in the parking lot and watched movies while my mom shopped at Forest Hills Drive-in, guess a bunch of kids did this.
Wow, Someone beat ATl.We had the First 4 plex in Georgia. Augusta with Masters 4,ATlanta must have been slow during these days.
Good Stories, you guys from Columbus are going to have to do what I did in Augusta is get more history on here before it is lost as memtioned above.
ABC had Several,rivest266.
I bet they used 16mm film….Glad to see something from Columbus,
In my 1956 motion picture almanac only this drive in is listed.SKYVIEW was owned in 1956 by SKYVIEW DRIVE-IN THEATRES.
Work one of the Shows, guys like I had to when the IMPERIAL in Augusta was understaffed…..AN Education.
Larry FM, Phil did run the Drive-in 1956,He is listed in my 1956 Motion Picture Almanac.
Double check, it parked 400 cars and was a Hanna Theatre Service Drive-in.
