Hargrove Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

I passed the old Hargrove Theatre in Sparta, Georgia going to Milledgeville, Georgia one day. The theatre was in terrible shape. State Highway 16 runs through Sparta. Never could find out who owned the old theatre, but the last film to play there was what was left of"Nightmare on Elm Street" letters which remained on the marquee since it closed in 1984. I wanted so bad to explore the old theatre but was riding with someone else and couldn’t.

If this theater is one the main street, it should be listed as demolished. I usually drive through Sparta going to Sandersville. I remember about six years ago one Sunday Morning riding through Sparta and seeing the old theater had burned. The building was demolished right after that and a cheesey temporary “snack shack” has been put in the theater’s place.

I guess Google Map puts the theater at the corner of Broad Street and Boland Street, Is that correct?

Anyone have more info or photos?

Here’s a photograph [September 2011] of what I believe to be the site of the demolished Hargrove.

The building next door was a flower shop caught fire and burned the theater. The theater wasnt a total lost, but the owner who had a snack bar inside the theater decided to demo and was allow to place that metal building in the center of town. What a Shame!
