The Franklin Theater was purchased by George Wilby in 1938, following a devastating fire. Mr. Wilby announced his intention at that time to rebuild the house. By 1950, it was operated by Affiliated Theaters, a subsidiary of McLendon Theatres.

George Wilby was my grandfather. He died in 1973. He was involved with many theaters throughout the south. He built many drive-in theaters in South Florida.

I am looking for more info about his life and any info on his father, also George Thomas.
