The Horatio Theatre, Horatio AR

This theater was opened in May 1950. Out of curiosity, I checked to see if there was also a Hamlet, Arkansas. There is, believe it or not. Perhaps some city planner was a Shakespeare fan.

Boxoffice noted in July 1949 that K. Lee Williams was in the process of opening a 300-seat theater in Horatio.

I just added a photo of an old post card, which shows the name Horatio on the marquee.
