When I lived in Greenville, the Plaza used to get all the movies made by MGM and a few big-ticket titles from other studios. “West Side Story” played there, as did “King of Kings”, “How the West Was Won”, “My Fair Lady”, “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” and “Doctor Zhivago”. The Carolina got the movies from 20th-Fox and Columbia — “The Robe” and “South Pacific” played in re-release at the Carolina. “The Sound of Music” played for nearly four months in 1965 at the Carolina, as well. I also saw “Lawrence of Arabia” there, along with “The Music Man” and “Gypsy”, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” and “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”. I spent many, many hours watching movies at the Carolina.

The location and the photo are way off. The theatre was located at the back of Lewis Plaza. The basic building is still there. Comfortable, and the best popcorn in town. The first movie I saw there was “Mary, Mary” with Debbie Reynolds. The last: “Planet of the Apes”

The theatre in Wade Hampton Mall was the Mall Cinema, which opened in 1964 or 1965.
