Wasn’t this theatre anchored by three major stores? I know it was anchored by a Winn-Dixie grocery store and a Roses Department Store and at one end a Eckerd Drugs. The theatre was on the opposite end of the shopping center off US. 421.

Why they would have refurbished this theater is anyones guess.The numbers at this theater have been bad for years.
