From a local real estate site:

The Adele Theater (c. 1914) located at 107 N. Madison Avenue, now home of Blackwell’s Furniture Co., was a silent movie theater that closed in 1923. The only significant alteration to the original theater was the leveling of the downstairs floors.

This is from a report by the University of Georgia library:

There were several significant acquisitions this year, notably relating to the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire starting in 1788. Special among the manuscript acquisitions are the three original drawings of birds of Georgia by John Abbott (1819-1826); a collection of papers relating to the operation of the Adele Theater, a silent movie house, in Eatonton, Georgia; and additions to the Natural History Print Collection, which includes the donation of two original watercolors on vellum painted by artist Pierre Joseph Redoute for the Empress Josephine. A large set of topographic maps
of China was purchased for the map room.

Here is what the Adelle looks like today. The sign says Blackwell Furniture Adelle theater. The outside looks better than the Pex facade.
