Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

I could find no time line on the Martin Triple Theatre. It was opened in the old K-Mart Shopping Center on West Main Street east of Rollinwood Drive.

This was among the last of the Martin stand-alone cinemas built before Carmike bought out the circuit. This rather non descript venue brought about the demise of the Capitol in downtown Lebanon when it opened in 1980. Martin allegedly had a non-compete clause attached to the lease of the Capitol that has keep it shuttered for the past 26 years. The Roxy, a 20-screen cinema opened in the area in 2004 and drained the life out of the old triplex. Maybe some attention can now be focused on restoring and reopening the Capitol.

This space has been converted to retail use – a Dollar General I believe. Ironic, since when I was kid, the old Princess was the Dollar General store.

I was manager here from 1992-1994. It was a great time for everyone, and I’ll never forget the sold-out crowds to – of all things – The Beverly Hillbillies!

We had a great staff, and a lot of good times. I’m sorry to see it close, but it was pretty run-down even then. Of course, there wasn’t a lot I could do about it. Gotta love Carmike.
