This theater was in a shopping center that is still in existence. There is an Ingles grocery store and an “Asiana Grand Buffet” across the parking lot. As you drive into the shopping center and look to the left, you can see where the theater was due to the raised roof in the back to accommodate the screens and projection booths. For some reason I think I remember seeing either “The Empire Strikes Back” or “Return of the Jedi” there.

August 7 1977 sees ASHEVILLE WEST playing Gergory Peck in a pretty good military movie,not quite up to par with PATTON,but Peck’s MacARTHUR is playing at the Asheville West. On the other screen for some reason,“ONE ON ONE” which is also playing at the other Irwin-Fuller Theatre the Merrimon 1 and 2 Theatres.Asheville,must be a heck of a basketball city!
