I found an old piece of company stationary from the Fulton Theatre. It lists the phone number as CALHOUN 3912 and the manager as Joyce Liggett. (she was my aunt) I wish it contained actual theatre business, but it is just a few recipes for banana bread. If anyone has any information about the staff, I would love to hear it.
I am looking to shed some light on some lost family history. My uncles and aunts worked in theaters around Atlanta for several years before and after WW2, even (rumor has it) working with Ludlow Porch at one of them. But what spiked my curiosity was a newspaper clipping I found in an old book which reads:
THE PALACE THEATER WILL RUN THE MUTUAL SERVICE
Atlanta, GA. – Mr. N.L. Leggette has purchased the Palace Theater at Newman, GA., and has booked the Mutual Service through the Atlanta Office, which has now been used for the past three weeks. Mr. Leggette reports a big business, which he attributes to the splendid programs being served him.
N.L. Leggette was my grandfather, but because of a family rift we know virtually nothing about him, nor about what the Mutual Service was or the Palace Theater or Newman GA.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
