The complete address for the Calhoun is 1218 Noble Street, Anniston, AL 36201. The theatre is still standing, albeit just barely. It appears that some efforts were started to restore the theatre but were never completed. Starting here and going through here are photos of the Calhoun as of September 22, 2006.

The public library of Henderson County, North Carolina, has published a book titled “Buildings as History” which is about the works of Hendersonville architect Erle G. Stillwell. The Calhoun Theatre in Anniston, Alabama, is listed as one of the many theaters he designed.

Just a note to say with the release of the new Star Wars film. I saw the original Star Wars for the very first time at the Calhoun in 1981. In fact it was the first time I had ever been to a theater to see any film. Magic memories that will last forever
