Opened prior to 1941, the Dixie Theatre was owned in the early-1950’s by Bill and Nan Griffin, two locals who also ran the Columbia Theatre in Harlem about twelve miles away. Projectionist Don Sullivan remembered in a Columbia News-Times interview how he would work both theatres along with Phil Hoffman.
With more nicer screens popping up in nearby Augusta along with television the Dixie Theatre called it quits in the 1960’s when a lot of screens went dark. "I saw some of the best movies ever made" Hoffman stated. The Dixie Theatre building was still standing last time I drove through having been an insurance office for years. Wrens is located in a much poorer county than Harlem and I wouldn’t expect the locals would try to reopen that theatre, but who knows.
