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.

This is a recent photo of the Anderson Center apartments showing the former theater marquee over the entrance and part of the remaining balcony incorporated into the apartments:

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.

Chuck….It doesn’t look like this building. The 1986 photo looks more like the building to the left of the former theater.

The 1986 photo is the building to the left of the theater. Whoever took the photo might have thought that building was the theater building.
