cccmoviehouses commented about Fox Theatre on Feb 4, 2014 at 6:18 pm

The grandest of all theaters! What a magnificent movie palace, the interior is fabulous and the exterior is awe inspiring and just think it was almost torn down what a tragedy that would have been. I was living in Atlanta and working in the area in 1973 when that was going on. The first time I saw the Fox was in 1963 and later saw Willie Nelson in concert at the Fox around 1975, but this is still a great place to see a movie, especially “ Raiders of the Lost Ark” which my wife and I took our boys to see in the late seventies, what a magical time!

Did the Miller make it? I heard it was being looked at as a possible home for the symphony without much excitement. Could it possibly be saved, what a tragedy if were not. Might it become a performing arts venue much like the Imperial. Augusta do the right thing and save this treasure.

Got to see the inside of this beautiful theater around 2006, so glad Augusta saved it, what a treasure.

I had a tour of the Grand about 10 years ago. Fitzgerald should be extremely pleased that they have such a wonderful venue to be enjoyed by generations to come.

cccmoviehouses commented about Riverside Drive-In on Jan 30, 2014 at 7:58 pm

The Riverside Drive-In was Macon’s newest, opening around 1962 with “The Great Escape”. It was owned by the Georgia Theater Company, this was and still is one of the nicest parts of Macon. Weekends were special here while in high school, the Riverside was were we would meet, we had certain rows we all parked on, what great times, GWTW!!

cccmoviehouses My wife and I recently attended “In the Mood”, a live musical at the Lucus. What a magnificent theater!!! The restoration has brought this movie palace back to it’s original form, the detail done on the interior looks like a fine painting. The marquee and exterior are exquisite. What a showplace!

I understand the old Muse Theatre in Perry is going to be renovated and restored. Site needs to be updated to indicate Perry had a indoor theatre.

What a treasure, way to go Cairo, wish other towns would see the value of the treasures they have before it’s too late, too many have been lost already.

cccmoviehouses commented about Carver Theater on Aug 5, 2012 at 6:50 pm

The Carver Theatre is one of only two classic theatres left in Columbia. The Fox being the other which is being restored and will become the Nickelodeon in the fall of this year. The Carver has not had much attention, hopefully that will change. Recently a historic building was demolished in the Waverly area and that has brought other historic buildings under the microscope, which is a good thing.

The Skyway I am told by long time Columbians was located right across from the SC State Fairgrounds on Rosewood Dr.

cccmoviehouses commented about Motor View Drive-In on Jul 21, 2012 at 6:16 pm

I don’t have an exact address for the Motor-Vue Drive-in, however it was located on Eisenhower Parkway close to the intersection with Pio NoNo Ave, the lst Kmart in Macon was build either on the site or next to it. The back of the Westgate Theatres would be about where you would have entered the Drive-in off Eisenhower Parkway.

I believe Perry had a theatre in town named the Pal, the building was still there four or five years ago in need of repair and renovation, I hope it was not torn down for a (you guessed right) a parking lot. There may have been another theatre as well in town. Can anyone look into this, would appreciate any information and photos.

Whiteville had a drive-in called the Starlite, which I understand served two purposes, a drive-in theatre and a drive in resturant on the front or outside. Any information or photos would be great.

What a magnificent job they did in restoring this movie palace, way to go Americus. I wish other towns would follow your lead and realize what treasures they have and won’t ever have again.

So sad, “ a small effort was mounted to save the theatre”, another treasure lost.

Great photo, that was before I remember the Bibb, not sure when they renovated, did not realize what a drastic change it was, am still hopeful someone will restore it.

Chuck, can you find out anything on the movie theatre that once was in Evergreen, or suggest where I might find any information.
