Lomo Theatre

The Lomo Theatre was open in 1933 with seating listed at 600. Through its life it was operated by Publix, Paramount-Richards and Paramount Gulf.

The Lomo Theatre closed in the mid-1950’s and has since been demolished. There is a parking garage where the theatre once stood.

Any further information on the Lomo Theatre would be appreciated.

The Lomo’s listed stopped in 1951 and the Rebel theatre opened across from the post office on April 12th, 1952. Is this the same theatre?

The Rebel theater that I recall was located on Pine Street next to Sackler’s Furniture Store which is a block west down from the U.S. Post Office. There is a possibilty that the LOMO occupied the lot adjacent to the Sackler Store lot after moving from the Magnolia Building that was directly across the street (south) from the U. S. Post Office. In the early 1940s, there was a Belk’s Deparmtent Store across from the U.S. Post Office.
