that doesn’t look like the theatre i was talking about.JFbrantley probably saw the one i did,unless they remodeled the downtown the picture above does not look like the one i saw.
Alvin Drive in is on cinematreasures.
There was a Sparta,Mo. Drive in in this state that held 75 cars,The Alvin Drive-in.owned by Taft Amusements.
thanks chuck for getting it on, nice brief history.
Looks like a nice Four Plex.
nice until tripled i bet,just like my old Theatre NATIONAL HILLS.
Thanks dwtpa97,you did something i couldn’t do, interview a Local.
Go to “REMEMBERING PLITT THEATRES” on Facebook for more Plitt info.
In 1956 it was the HUNTERDON drive-in parking 300 cars and owned by Brant Theatres.
I know Jerry was shocked when R rated movies were booked in.
Why didn’t the Ushers ask the manager to key to the cash box on the pinball machine.like we did.strange.
that is not a bad deal, if they keep the theatre up,wonder if it is dark now.
Need a little bit more history, surely some locals can add something,this is pretty good size city.
Carmike has never impressed me as a theatre chain,what few theatres i have seen that they run are dumps and mainly in smaller towns.
anyone that worked for PLITT THEATRES on facebook there is “Remembering Plitt Theatres” anyone can join the group.
redjayd if any one knows about TAMPA theatres it is Nick.He did a book on THE Ritz that would drive you crazy if you like old theatres during the 60’s.
Consolidated was a big chain in the Carolinas,don’t recall any in Georgia.Two pretty good flicks to open with.
I bet spliting the theatres made it look horrible,Theatre owners in this era loved ‘sheetrock".
I thought this might have been a Ft,Bragg theatre on base. Sure they had a couple.
The friend had nothing on the Theatre.
I will make it a Favorite.GCC.The Best.
Wonder if Carmike had this location.
Parked 230 cars and was run by Porter Hines in 1956.
Probably a lot of Downtown has Changed I have a Friend there maybe she can help.
