My name is Janis Tharrington Kellogg. My father Roy Tharrington was the manager of the Long Theaters in Coolidge, Az from approximately 1943-44 to 1961. The Studio Theater was located at 208 North Main Street (corner of Roosevelt and Main) and the San Carlos Theater at 321 South Main Street, between Wilson and Harding. There was also a drive-in theater at the south end of town name the Prince Drive-In which I think was build in the 50s. As I can remember the Studio Theater was remodeled shortly after my dad became manager. Don’t know for sure but seems like it had a different name before the remodel. All these theaters are gone now, demolished. There was another theater put in quite a number of years after 1961. It was located on Coolidge Ave just west of Arizona Blvd. It may have been the “Mauk” theater listed on the Coolidge website.
