Would anyone have a picture of the Gene Theater. The above link of it pictured in Boxoffice of May 5, 1951 is broken. It has been closed since the late 70s and was named for Governor Eugene Talmadge of the 1940s. He was from McRae, Ga. where this movie theater operated. It is in a state of disrepair now. We would love to see an image of it in its glory days. Thanks, Telfair/McRae Ga. Historical Group
