I passed through Dublin this week and was surprised to see that this old Martin location is once again a full time operation. They still do live shows, but at all other times it is a full time, small town, single screen movie theater. According to the employees who were nice enough to let me look around, it has been this way since November 2017. On the day of my visit they were showing Jurassic World. Here’s hoping they can compete with the Carmike / AMC west of town.

I have posted some pictures from my visit in the photo section.

The theatre I was asking about in the above post was named “Village.” It is not listed on CT and I do not know enough about it to start a page. Hopefully someone else will remember it.

When this was a movie theatre was it named Martin? I recall seeing one movie here, Part 2 Walking Tall which would make it summer of ‘75. There was another, much newer single screen to the west of downtown that I also attended, but do not see a listing for anything like that.

I did enjoy going to the movies at the Martin Theater in 1957, when I would spend time in the summer with my aunt and uncle in Dublin. I would walk from their house out by the old hospital to town, times were different then. The theater had separate entrances, one for downstairs and one for the balcony. I have seen the theater sense it has been restored and now is known as the Dublin Theater, it looks great, good job in saving a treasure.

They have a Facebook page called Theatre Dublin. It says they will have a website soon: www.theatredublinga.com but it is not active yet. Elvis impersonator Ben Portsmouth recently played there.

I think it gives the current seating as 620.
