Cletus Benton owned the theatre. Mr. Benton also owned the Ford dealership in town, and opened the Shoney’s Restaurant in 1971, back when the I-75 ended almost at the theatre. The Starvue’s manager was a wheelchair-bound man who had been injured in a fall from a lift used in painting the screen (a number of other theatre employees died in similar falls during heyday of the drive-in theatre). Seems like his name was Hank, but I’m probably wrong. I believe there may have been a house at the base of the screen. It wasn’t unusual for the manager, or projectionist, or maintenance man and his family to live there.
