The Rosemary Theatre opened in 1950, and was the last downtown theatre to remain! Aiken had another downtown theatre, the Patricia Theatre which lasted into the 1950’s.
By 1969 it had been renamed The Cinema and was playing "The Love Bug" with shows at 1,3,5,7,9. The Fox Drive-In and The Cinema always ran small ads in the Augusta papers.
On July 4th, 1965 The Cinema was playing "Yellow Rolls Royce" with Ingrid Bergman and Rex Harrison. Shows at 3:00, 5:02, 7:14, 9:26, and "In Harm’s Way" was coming soon.
By the 1970’s The Cinema expanded to a triple and continued to run movies even with a Regal cinema at the mall. However, The Cinema was closed in April 2001, sold and torn down for its real estate value.
