The Court Theatre opened in 1920 and was initially part of the Rockwood Amusement Circuit. It was later acquired by O'Neil Theatres.

The Court Theatre shows movies on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. In 2010, work began on a renovation project, which was completed in 2011 and the Court Theatre is now open again.

Here is a photo of a Court Theatre in nearby Camden, TN. I am wondering if the address on this photo might be in error.

Unless it has been closed very recently, the Court is still open,

The film in LM’s post was released in 2005, so it was open at least until then.

I drove by the Court over the Christmas holidays, and am happy to report that it is still open; showing movies on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The movie the weekend before Christmas was ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS. The theatre looks pretty much the way it did in the above picture, which is pretty much the way it’s always looked since I first drove by it in the 60’s. I went to the Court a couple of times in the early 80’s, and really enjoyed the “old time” atmosphere. I remember at the time, the only choices for soda at the concession stand were Coca Cola and cream soda, probably the only time I have ever had cream soda at a movie theatre!

Incidently, the Huntingdon Court Square is now also home to the Dixie Performing Arts Center, which includes the Hal Holbrook Theatre. This was a project of actress Dixie Carter and her husband, actor Hal Holbrook. Dixie Carter is a native of nearby McLemoresville, and I believe they now have a home in McLemoresville. The Dixie is in a building that has never, to the best of my knowledge, been a movie theatre. However, it is very unusual to find both a performing arts theatre and an active movie theatre both on the court square of such a small town.

The Court Theatre is undergoing massive restoration and upgrading. This will be well worth the trip to see upon its completion! For more information and photos of the process visit the Huntingdon Court Theatre website.

Status of this theater should be changed to open, as they have finished remodeling and are now showing movies again on Friday Saturday and Sunday. Go to website noted in prior post for schedule and photos.
