The Callahan Theatre was built by the entrpreneural Callahan family of Bainbridge. The Callahan’s were successful businessmen and dervived some of their early wealth from river steamboats and the cotton trade.

The Callahan Theatre had a Wurlitzer two-manual style “B” theatre organ (four ranks), Opus No. 1578 which was shipped from the North Tonawanda, NY factory on 2/11/27. The instrument was later moved in 1930 to Savannah’s WTOC radio.

The Callahan Theatre had closed by 1941.

This 1950 trade ad shows a theatre claimed to be in Bainbridge, GA, but no specific name is given. The name on the vertical sign is too blurry to make out. Any thoughts? boxoffice
