Jonesboro Twin Theater

The Jonesboro Twin was a small twin cinema on Main Street just off Tara Boulevard which opened in 1973. It was almost always a second run house. During the 1970’s and early 1980’s it was an okay place to catch a second run at a price that was cheaper than Arrowhead.

Sorry to burst you bubble, Chuck, but your picture is of a theater in Jonesboro Arkansas. The above theater is in Jonesboro Georgia and did not look like the above picture. Good try anyway.

Here is the Jonesboro Twin today. It seems ironic that a club would occupy the old theater when everything else in the stip center is now a church.

Ha! I saw Bloodsucking Freaks there. Must have been 13 or 14.

Closed in 1983. It was owned by Ideal Family Theatres from 1979 until it closed.

I’m one of the new owners of this building. Does anyone have any old pictures of this theater when it was open? We have completely renovated the place and I would like to show off a little of its heritage.

The highway sign for this theater is visible during an establishing long-shot for Sheriff Justice’s (Jackie Gleason) “F.O.” speech to an Alabama state trooper (Quinnon Sheffield) in 1977’s SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT.
