The Columbia Theatre in Harlem, Georgia opened in August of 1949 and closed in 1963. A 2005 article that I found on this theatre states the following:
“The City of Harlem in Georgia has purchased the old Columbia Theatre, the building with the Laurel and Hardy mural on the outside south wall, facing the Gordon Highway.
This old building is practically a shambles inside. It was a theatre many decades ago, but in recent years it’s been used for a variety of purposes, including flea markets and having rooms built to house tenants/owners. But that is all about to change. The City of Harlem recently bought this old building and is now doing two things: having volunteers go into the building and clear it out of old junk (by the truck-loads), and fund raising that will be needed to do the major restoration – in excess of $700,000. If you are inclined, I’m sure the folks in Harlem would very much appreciate any donations".
