Opened on April 24, 1969 by McGuire Theatres as the Big Tree Theatre. Seating given at 560. It became part of the Cobb Theatres and then in 1979 was operated by Floyd Theatres.

In 1981 it was twinned and became known as the Big Tree Twin Cinema. (The Big Tree name came from its location, Big Tree & Ridgewood Avenue.)

The cinema closed in 1998. Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.

I moved to the area back in 1996 when the theatre was still open. the charge was only 99cents for films that were out about 3 months earlier. the place was located in the back corner of a shopping center not visable from the parking lot. A furnature store took over the site about 2 years ago. the theatre had the worst popcorn i ever had in any theatre. the butter was like watered down to make it a soggy mess lol

Michael,

If this the actual opening date, why can’t you tell us the opening picture?

And why don’t you tell us where you got this date – what is your proof? And if you will not, what are you saving it for?

Gosh — why can’t anybody go to Daytona Beach and take a picture of the theatre? Oh wait — I did… which is way more useful than knowing the theatre opened playing the Raquel Welch and Burt Reynolds opus 100 Rifles.

Jim Brown Starred in “100 Rifles” I found a one sheet at the MILLER Theatre in Augusta where the Management had covered up a section of Welch and Brown in a Hug.Wonder if the Folks in Florida did the same thing.I left the one-sheet just the way they left it with the paper still on.
