The Richards Theatre opened in 1940 with seating listed at 350. This theatre was named after Richard Cobb. The theatre once housed the offices of Cobb Theatres.
The theatre closed in 1977 and was later demolished.

The site is now part of the Regions Bank. Any further information on the Richards Theatre would be appreciated.

Mrs. Lucille Cobb was the president and R.C. Cobb was the booker and buyer all of this in 1956.

Previous theatres owned by the Cobb Family was the Roxy (where Little Beaver appeared in person one time. When the larger, more-modern Richard’s Theatre opened everyone went there – expecially on Monday Jackpot nights. If you were there and your ticket stub number was called, you won whatever amount the weekly prize was. If no winner, the dollar amount increased for the next week.

I remember several 3-D movies being shown at the Richards and later on the screen was enlarged for Cinemascope features.
