I was involved in twining this theatre in the early 80’s. Front/Back disection acommplished by adding an inside enclosed tunnel leading from the lobby to the auditorium in the back. Coresponding tunnel upstairs leads to new projection booth. “Tivoli” style lighting was just coming into vogue at this time creating interesting time tunnel effects and light chasing.

Theatre was formerly owned and operated by Rives Brown Realty. The original layout also utilized an upstairs enclosed CRY ROOM.
