thanks stan… hope to have pictures of the place being torn down on here soon.
I finally found a local who remembers the drive in, he could not recall the name, but the 62 year old man said it was located on US HWY 78 coming out of Thomson, Ga.the Box office stood for a long time, colored pink he thought…..at least we have the road it was on..
hope to have pictures of it on soon….
well it was bulldozed down today………GONE….
two different flicks….
glad I snapped a few pictures, hope to have an article here if the local paper does a story…
wow LINsAY, what a trooper, I know it hurts, you outta do what I did and make a special tribute on FACEBOOK, I did that with all the theatres I worked at, but boy reading what you wrote, wow, you went beyond the call of a theatre mgr, I thought Hendersonville could support a dollar house, but with digital that is out the door…I just got a call from my cousin RAY that they are tearing it down next week, he walked in soggy floors from a bad roof….so on, mold, it was a nice a showplace, pity the Carolina was torn down for a stinking bank, it should have been saved, but by judging the locals, I don’t think an arts group there even cared…sad..
hoping to get pictures from an ex manager on here..
thanks a lot….
thanks for the history..
when I was in SAN DIEGO I read about a new theatre opening BOFFO CINEMAS, I put it on here, but is gone, did the theatres being built fell thru,,
there was also another theatre downtown not far from here, don’t know why its not on here…
I have a bunch of stuff, but most of it comes from theatres I worked at, when they went dark I would go in a grab what I wanted before the wrecking ball got there, the best thing is to get off the beaten path on the back roads and run into an old closed theatre or drive in, sure there are a few around…
I just heard the BELMONT is Closed……really strange it always had them packed in,,Maybe the couldn’t afford the UPDATES, maybe someone local will CONFIRM this/…
dang I thought it was called the rebel drive -in
I got the news from a source in Atlanta. who knows…
ROADBOYIL , facebook has a Middlesboro theatre facebook page, be great if you could add to it..
thanks scott, not a bad little four plex, sure carmike has run it in the ground by now..
lol. so far hardly any of the locals have found it or care, maybe those older folks have died off..
CHUCKOWENS I have a MIDDLESBORO classic theatre page on facebook.
yep, last time I was there a truck stop….
THANKS BILL, finally got the ad on……
just wonder if any one sheets are in there..a treasure?
Talked with a couple of locals I guess late sixties, they had great memories of going here as kids, like so many small towns it was the only thing in town.
