I saw “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” there about 1969. It is now a Kohls department store.

This was the place to go for junior high kids the the mid 60ies. I saw “The Blue Max” every Friday night about a dozen times.

Of course it was a “twin”. That’s why they named it Gemini, duh.

I saw Liz Taylor in Cleopatra every Friday night for what seems like months in about 1965. Didn’t matter what was playing. This is where kids from Putman City Junior High would hang. I think that officially it was the town of Warr Acres, then. Had a balcony I remember. Not far away was Wedgewood Amusement Park, Lakeview Country Club, Coronado Bowling alley. David

My very first job at age 14 in 1966 was at Circle Bowl, the bowling alley just south of the theater. Mopped floors, emptied ashtrays and picked up the empty beer bottles. It had several pinballs and one coin-op pool table. I played the beer drinkers 8-ball. Across the traffic circle was the seafood restaurant which I recall was named the Bounty. Shaped like a ship. Nearby it was Perry’s Circle-D drive-in. It had 2 coin-op pool tables. Played the drunks there, too. It had dice games out side in the back. Also close by: Tower Motel’s Bamboo room, Southern Kitchen, Circle Inn. For me the theater was a place to practice making out! David
