Dave Lebovitz and his brother owned and operated several ‘colored’ movie theatres: Ace Theatre, Harlem Theatre and Georgia Theatre. He and his brother also owned and operated three drive-in theatres: Sky-Vue Drive-In, Lamar Drive-In and the Sunset Drive-In (in West Memphis).
The Georgia Theatre (at the point of Georgia Street and Mississippi Boulevard) opened in 1939. It closed in the aftermath of Dr. King’s assassination in 1968 and has been a motor cycle bar since the mid-1970’s. The exterior has changed very little and there is still a pie-shaped canopy. For several years it has been a restaurant.
