The Oaks Cinema opened in the early-1970’s and was located five blocks from the much older Echo Theatre. The Oaks Cinema was open until 2000.

Laurens is about 10,000 population, but the county is 70,000. I grew up 26 miles away, but I had left home before The Oaks opened. I went here once with my wife around 1968 or so. Inside, it was a nice theatre then. The exterior appeared to be of a Butler type construction. I would have guessed it had more than 322 seats. Carmike later did a twinning which I never saw. If it was down-the-middle, it would have been the usual disaster, long and narrow with a tiny screen.

The Oaks didn’t open until 1970 (maybe even 1971). It definitely seated more than 322.
