We have brought back the Pex theater in a new way. Even Mr Yarborough would be happy with what my family has done. We have remodeled the inside and turned it into a country style all you can eat buffet. The kind of cooking that will remind you of the good old days. That food that your granny cooked. No frozen food or stuff that comes out of a box. Just good old country cooking from scratch. Hope y'all will join us at the Country Kitchen. Sunday thru Friday 11 til 3.

Yarbrough’s was adjacent to the Pex. Yarbrough’s was a jewelry/record store. As years went by, the locals affectionately nicknamed their only movie theater the pitiful Pex.

Owner was J W Peck. The last time I was through Eatonton, it was still intact but closed. There was no name on it.

The 1986 photo looks like it has a sign that said Yarborough,another A.K.A name as someone posted above.

Outside of the Adelle Theater which is around the corner and off the square, this is the only other theater in Eatonton.

Hmm, well the address at the top of the page here just says “Jefferson Avenue”… and since Eatonton is a pretty small place, I’d say it’s a safe bet this is the same theatre. Maybe it was the Pex first, and then the Town Square Cinema later?

Could this be the Pex? (I took this photo in Eatonton this weekend.)

I thought this theater was called the Yarborough. As long as I can remember going to visit my parents' relatives in Washington County which has two cinema treasures, The Pastime and Arcade, Yarborough was alway on the building. This was true even when the theater was open.
