The Chester Theatre was a very nice theatre for a city of this size (about 7000). The seating of 712 seems about right. The aisles were steep, giving it somewhat the feel to today’s stadium seating. The screen was larger than most theatres in cities of this size. I lived about 30 miles away in the early 1960’s, and attended this theatre two or three times. I am not sure that the above address is correct. If you Google 109 Hwy 9 Business (Main St.), I thought it was on the vacant lot beside Kimbrell’s Furniture.

Fred Powell launched the Chester in 1941 very briefly as part of his Cherokee Theatre Circuit. It then became part of his Powell and Everett Circuit that then became the Stewart and Powell Circuit post-Fred Powell. Pictures at opening in photos section.
