Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet


The Anderson Theater was located in Mullins, SC. I haven’t found a timeline for this theater. The Anderson Theater and adjacent buildings have been converted into the Anderson Center apartments. The marquee has been retained over the entrance and the balcony also was re-used.

The Anderson Theatre in Mullins was owned by the Anderson Theatre Company—a chain that owned theatres in nearby Myrtle Beach, Kingstree, Hemingway, Manning and Pamplico. This chain (owned by B.B. Anderson) also operated drive-in theatres.

In 1963, Anderson Theatres operated the Anderson in Mullins as mentioned above, as well as the Anderson in Hemingway and the Ocean Drive and Colonial in Ocean Drive Beach. Presumably they picked up more theaters later.

Boxoffice magazine reported in January 1938 that the Anderson Theater in Mullins was being constructed at a cost of $40,000. The theater was expected to open in April of that year.

Marquee obviously wasn’t retained, it’s a reproduction. Was the building next door also a theater?
