there was also another movie theater on west court st,it was also owned by the house family. it was open until the mid sixties. belk made an annex out of it. yes marion is a small town. it is a town full of greedy people who care nothing about history. if some one tries to restore the theater . the city council would thro every road block they could in the way. if they do not get something out of it. it will not get approved.marion id a dead dead town

Rory the house theatre stayed open until the early 80’s, i watched jaws and star wars there…they closed soon after the Mcdowell Twin Cinemas opened…

I now live in Marion, and talking to a local I think it’s doubtful this theatre ever showed films. I’ve not been in it, as it’s now a church venue, but this was apparently a local regional theatre for plays and such. It’s in dire need of restoration, but I fear the local community has little interest, but it would be great to restore and convert to a film revival house, uhfortunately, Marion is a very small town.

The House Theatre had recently opened, according to a brief article in the April 29, 1950, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. The architect was C.C. Benton, who also designed a couple of South Carolina Theaters. The owner-operator was named Ernest House.
