The Pex Theatre opened in 1945 and at that time had seating for 550, on the main floor and a balcony reserved for African-Americans, accessed through a separate entrance. The movie house hosted a special gala showing of “The Color Purple” in January 1986 attended by Eatonton native Alice Walker, the author of the novel.
The Pex Theatre has since closed and was converted into office space. In 2017 it was converted into a country style restaurant.
