Part of the downtown square scene in Ocala. The Dixie Theater was operating prior to 1941, and in the early-1940’s it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary E.J. Sparks.

Building still stands but is now a store.

There are a few buildings facing the square that look like they could’ve been theaters, but I’m not positive about any of them.

I found it listed on Magnolia Street but that’s all homes. So is Magnolia and Magnolia Avenue. The only one that could work is North Magnolia Avenue, that seems to be a business street.

Anibal, if you know the building still stands and is now a store, what is the address?

Open ~1923-~1955 approximate? Your all welcome to verify those dates.

Also owned by Florida State Theaters, Inc. (Affilliated with American Broadcasting Companies, Inc.) of Jacksonville, Fla. Louis J. Finske, President.

Anyone know the address, more info,or photos?

I think the correct address is 26 S. Magnolia Avenue, just opposite the downtown square.
