Hope they make it.Newport is large enough to support four screens,Pity the Woodzo was closed.
GreaT Comment mrkevt,just drove by Labor day weekend.Grown up,Snakey for sure,but Screen is up.
According to my Cousin,the Skyland Arts Cinema will not reopen,the lady backing the project does not have funds,My Cousin had already brought a platter over from the old CAROLINA 1 and 2, and now has to return it to storage,with Ditigal coming it never made sense.He said her popcorn poper was the size of a mircowave.
My cousin hopes to get the key from the landlord and go back in his old theatre,he feels Mold and Mildew will really be bad,he just wants to see what EPIC THEATRES took out when they closed it. Told him to take pictures.
Thanks for the PICTURE>>>>>GREAT.
Can’t forget, his wife Bonnie Hutto brings an old fashion Popcorn Popper and makes popcorn for the seniors.
Ray started out showing 16mm movies to friends and local groups,then he decided to open a single screen 35mm Theatre,later to Twin it, In a few years it was all closed.Gone. Today, Ray Hutto is back showing 16 mm movies to retirement homes in Augusta,He was showing"THREE LITTLE BRUINS MAKE MISCHIEF".
lonely looking theatre in a lonely town, nice shot.
GCC gets a Fav, from me.
250 cars matches what i have, owned by E.R.Martin in 1956.

Sadly, it won’t last.
Agree Vito, but even its days are numbered,sadly.
thanks guys any more Theatre stories on the other screens in Downtown.
thanks Emily, nice write up.
looks like a most impressive theatre in its day.
Two lovers were found on the floor making love,A theatre employee found them, a deputy arrested them. Claude Harris and Angela Veale were booked into the Columbia County Detention Center charged with public indeceny.Hey Stupids, ever hear of a Drive-in,if you just have to make it in front of the big screen.
