Back in the 1960’s, as a kid, I used to go to the Zebulon every Saturday. I was nearly always the first to buy a ticket.

The ticket lady, I think, was named Ms. West. Does anyone remember her full name? She worked there for as long as I could remember when I was growing up in Cairo.

Larry Beardon should get all the credit. My family owned it prior to Larry’s ownership, and probably never taken time to rennovate and run it. So Kudos to Larry for preserving it so beautifully.

What a treasure, way to go Cairo, wish other towns would see the value of the treasures they have before it’s too late, too many have been lost already.

I have many fond memories of growing up in this theatre. Larry Bearden is my brother, and I spent time here as a child in the sixties when he was working here. It was called the Dunn Theatre then. When Larry took over the theatre in the early seventies, he gave me my first job. I spent my teenage years working in the snack bar. I love this place and am happy that it is still with us and is in great shape. The volunteers who oversee and run the place are to be commended for keeping a gem like this up and running. If movieman38 is you Sheldon, then I will certainly take you up on your offer next chance I get.

Lost Memory next time you are by the Zebulon please come in. I am the projectionest so I am there 99% of the time would be really nice to meet you and give you a tour of the theatre. That goes for anyone else who finds them self in Cairo and would like to see the theatre. I like to talk about the old girl and show her off.

We just finished a 100,000.00 remodel on the inside of the theatre. We now have new handicap bathrooms, new stair case to the balcony, new seats with cup holders, and have fixed all of the code issues you have with and old building. We are not done yet still need about 200.000.00 more to finish with the building
