I moved to South Carolina in the fall of ‘79 to attend USC as an undergrad. I saw my first Fellini film, Satyricon, there at the Nickelodeon, then, it changed my life and perspective. It was an amazing place, with nice coffees and pastries, and they had nutritional yeast in a shaker for the popcorn, which I never heard of, but found delicious and still continue today to crave nutritional yeast on popcorn, though its hard to find in Thailand where I have lived for many years. Happy memories of the Nick when I was young.

“The Nick” as it is known opened in 1979, and this location is currently closed as the Nickelodeon Theatre has moved to the site of the former Fox/State Theatre at 1607 Main St.

Could this be considered a “grindhouse” theater? What films did they show in the late 70’s early 80’s? I see a small ad for “Das Boot” in the window!

What a great place this sounds like bringing art films to a community that would not see them at the awful plexes.
