A good, rare view of the Judy Theater from 1986 in Hartwell.

Well put concerning the drugstores Ken.

You can never have enough drugstores, that’s what I always say. In Los Angeles we have a Walgreens every hundred feet or so.

Thats a nice photo. Status is now Demolished:

“The Judy Theater is a good vernacular example of the Art Deco style. This structure is a quonset hut, which is a "half-cylindrical framework, covered by corrugated metal that was widely used for housing and other purposes in the 1940’s during and immediately following WWII”.

“Hartwell, Georgia has demolished its historic Judy Theatre to make way for a CVS. The mayor, whose father built the theatre in the early 1940s and named it for his daughter, approved the project”.
