Mid `50’s photo added courtesy of the Historic Horry County, SC Facebook page. I received the below e-mail content from the museum today.

Mr. Zornig,

The picture you mentioned was a photograph of a picture shown at a presentation given by Dino Thompson at the Museum. The Theater was located in downtown Myrtle Beach. Mr. Thompson forwarded me some information on it…

Ben’s Broadway theater opened in the late 30s. After it was sold it became Broadway Theater. In the late 60s or early 70s it became the Rocking Chair theater. Across the street from the theater was a restaurant owned by Louie Achilles called the Broadway Restaurant.

According to Jack Thompson, a Myrtle Beach photographer, The Broadway was located on Main Street next to the Kozy Korner and the Restaurant was 818 Kings Hwy next door to his studio.

Jack Thompson will be speaking this Saturday at the Horry County Museum about the history of Myrtle Beach through his photographs if you are interested. The program begins at 1:00 PM and is free.

DavidZornig commented about Strand Theater on May 11, 2015 at 9:09 pm

January 2nd, 1932 photo and copy added courtesy of Walter Bell. (Strand blade sign in the background)

January 3, 1932 Fire destroyed both Morrill blocks in Franklin Square. Twenty six businesses were destroyed. The blaze required fireman from as far away as Haverhill, Massachusetts, and burned so hotly that the sprinkler system in the Strand Theater was set off The Morrill Block was rebuilt on a smaller scale. The new building had only two floors and ran from Third Street to Second Street. No cause was discovered for the fire.

1956 photo and copy added via the Historic Columbus, Indiana Facebook page.

Another view of the old Evening Republican building at Fifth and Washington (please refer to the two prior postings from this morning). This is from the 1956 Columbus High School yearbook. The triangular shaped building in front of the Evening Republican building housed the Tasty Nut snack shop and Smith’s Jewelers. Eventually, Home Federal would purchase all the property, including Castle Hall (where the Rio Theater is shown), and demolish it all.

It is also available as an e-book through most online book sellers, and last but by no means least, the Bartholomew County Public Library has copies available. 50% of the proceeds from book sales go directly to the Crump Theatre.

DavidZornig commented about Main Street Theater on May 10, 2015 at 9:55 pm

1955 photo and copy added courtesy of Stacey Todd Coffee, via the Historic Horry County, SC Facebook page.

The Holliday Theatre, at 335 Main Street, Conway. The first movie shown at the Holliday Theatre when it opened its doors on October 1, 1947, was “The Foxes of Harrow” with Rex Harrison and Maureen O’Hara.

It is believed to have been built by Joseph W. Holliday and John Monroe J. Holliday of Galivants Ferry as a memorial to their father, George J. Holliday. It had 650 seats, a “cry” room for mothers with small children, and certain seats were said to be larger than others to accommodate more robust patrons.

The Holliday Theatre abruptly closed in 1948. It was reopened January 1, 1952, closed December 31, 1953, reopened in September, 1954, and closed for a ten year period in August, 1955. It then reopened for eleven months as a second-run theatre. In 1965, the theatre was completely renovated. It closed its doors in August 1986. The final offering was “Top Gun” with Tom Cruise. After it closed, it was used as a church until January 1990, when it was destroyed by fire.

It has since been rebuilt as the Main Street Theatre, home of the reportory group, Theatre of the Republic.
