Touted as the showplace of Chattanooga, the Rogers was the definitive state of the art theatre in the region when it opened to the public on March 2, 1951. The theatre closed in 1976 and was demolished in 1980.

Lost Memory, thanks for the article. I remember well the Krystal there, and also the train station (N,C, and StL) I believe the General was there until the state of Georgia had a favorable court order to force its move back into Georgia.

I remember as a little boy my dad took me to the Rogers to see “THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH” IT was 1952 and the ROGERS could seat 1250 and it was standing room only.It was like that in a lot of theaters back.then Chattanooga did not get a TV station until 1954 but even with that people still went to the movies and what a time we had.Later in life I owned my own Movie Theater I think that had something to do with it.
