Happened across a listing for this theatre while perusing through a 1978 Knoxville city directory. Haven’t found any other information on the Cedar Bluff to date. Seems to have been an independent, short-lived endeavor. Any information you can provide on this theatre is appreciated.

JACK. CEDAR BLUFF’S SISTER WAS LOCATED IN MARTINEZ GEORGIA,OR AUGUSTA,GEORGIA. COLUMBIA SQUARE CINEMAS IS THE SAME THEATRE JUST LIKE STONE MONT IN ATLANTA.ALL THREE THEATRE WERE ABC THEATRES UNTIL PLITT BOUGHT ABC OUT.ALL THREE WERE OPENED ABOUT THE SAME TIME. I HAVE A BIT OF HISTORY ON COLUMBIA SQUARE,BUT SADLY IT WAS SOLD TO GEORGIA THEATRES WHO HAVE A HABIT OF ADDING SCREENS SO MY COLUMBIA SQUARE BECAME A TINY FOUR PLEX. WE DID HAVE BEAUTIFUL SCREENS THAT EVEN 2001 WOULD HAVE LOKED GREAT. HOPE I HELPED.

Did all the guys and gals that worked in the theatre business in Knoxville just vanish? For a city to be this big it is amazing very little conversations and theatre stories,just like Columbia,S.C.Oh, I forgot they are College towns,

I can recall seeing “The Empire Strikes Back” here.

@Mike, you’re right, Knoxville is a big college town and so most of our theater employees only stay a few years.

I saw Smokey and the Bandit and Corvette Summer, as well as many other “classics” there in the late 70’s

I worked at that theater in the late 80’s. It was my first job, and I have very fond memories of it. The theater was rarely crowded, except on the weekends, and there wasn’t much to do except flirt with the cute concession stand girls. I remember Ronnie McHone and his assistant manager David Fry, nice guys who went to work at the 6 plex a few miles down the road. I could go on and on about about that theater, what a great place for a first job.
