Most of my memories are from the dollar theater. I guess it was cheaper then so we went more often. I do remember seeing a movie in 1987 called Caught. Billy Graham was in part of it, doing a crusade. It was a Christian movie.

My father ran the projectors here for a number of years.I remember most of the theaters and drive inns around Augusta as he ran the projectors at most of them at one time or another.

I always liked coming here to see movies and I was sad when it closed down. At 99 cents a seat you couldnt beat it. Makes me remember all the movies I saw here in my elementary days. lol I remember when my dad took my younger sister and I to see Pokemon the First Movie(shows how young I am lol) here and it was packed to the brim!

Mike Rogers, I have enjoyed reading all your info on local theaters over the past few days. There are a couple of people in Augusta who care about theater history………

Saw many movies at this theater, I grew up right there behind the Pepsi plant on Bobby Jones and would ride my bike up here to see movies starting in the late 70s. Saw so many movies here. Last time I went was Thanksgiving Day 1999, my sisters wanted to see some Julia Roberts movie that was playing, and I went and saw the Martin Lawrence movie Blue Streak. I would go down and eat at the Del Taco at the other end of the parking lot and go see a movie…….. Some notable movies I recall seeing here were The Final Countdown, Red Dawn, Battle Beyond the Stars, Return of the Jedi on a re-release.

Mike Rogers and All,
thanks for the info. I was born in 1977 and lived off Columbia Rd 1979-1995. I remember going to the dollar theater a lot in the 1990s. I walked there some. I remember it being 4 theaters. It is my all time favorite theater. A schoolmate at Augusta Christian’s grandpa ran it for a while. I loved going there and went a few times in late 90s when I visited my grandparents. I was sad when it closed. It looks so much different now. I miss it and have great wonderful memories and have dreamed of it some.

Thanks again for all the interesting info.
