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.
Orr also added that the projectionist at the time the late Raymond Clouse let his daughter in the booth to watch “JAILHOUSE ROCK”.Other Employees on an old time card are Richard Waters and Joe Orr.
Tom Orr writing in the TIMES-NEWS writes of a tour he was given by the owner of the building the QUEEN was in.The Projection Booth still has the Projectors!June 10 2012.
Word is this Theatre might reopen,[Flat Rock Cinema]it is located in Flat Rock,N.C. The owner is thinking about Moving back into the Skyland Arts Theatre.
Small town Theatre!
Too bad it can’t be saved.
Thanks Mike, TV certainly killed alot of small town Theatres and that is too bad when one sees what TV has become.
Too bad the old building could not be saved, Ten Screens were added in a new theatre in a new location,wouldn’t surprize me if it had already closed.
Thanks NIGHTHAWK 1.New Bern had four Drive ins in 1956.
REGENCY 8 was hidden like this one,but GCC going under closed Regency.
Yeah, we depend on locals,The smaller the town, Fewer Info.
Thanks Guys,nice history.
Thanks Chuck.Wonder if it is still open.
Boy, Bob unless a local steps up with the info so many of these small theatres get the shaft.
Wow, what a story,but chuck is right, i would find the owner.Probably a mom and pop operation.
Thanks Bob, probably won’t be able to add much more.
Weis had just about the whole city,before getting other Georgia locations.
THE WEIS FAMILY had the whole city pretty much.Plitt was there.
