Originally a single screen movie house in my childhood home of Magnolia, Arkansas. My best guess is that it was built sometime in the 1940’s. My first experience in this, the only movie theatre in town, was in the early-1960’s when I enjoyed everything from Frankie and Annette to “Doctor Zhivago”. I know for sure that there was a sound-proof “cry room” where parents could tend to their children and still enjoy the movie through a large picture window.
In 2006 I took my wife back to Magnolia and discovered that the Cameo Theatre is now a triplex. It had been refurbished and from what I gathered the main room had been split into two separate auditoriums and the balcony was enclosed and set up with it’s own screen.
The Cameo Trio Theatre was closed by Stars Theaters in late-2012. It was reopened in late-2013, using one screen only. It had closed again by summer of 2016.
