Mart Theatre

Calhoun City, MS

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The Mart Theatre was named for its owner, Mart Mounger, who also owned several other small town theatres that bore his name. The Calhoun City theatre was closed when I saw it around 1990. The marquee had no changable letter boards, only the four neon letters.

The entrance was through a pair of glass doors which were fronted by a pair of screen doors: a rare feature on a movie theatre, but probably useful on a steamy Mississippi evening. The red brick building was small, and low. I would guess it had been built in the late 1950’s. No other information.

The Mart was part of the Wofford Circuit in the early sixties. J.F. Wofford was the owner, headquartered in Europa, MS.
