Cecil Quarles, best known for owning and operating the longtime Piedmont Drive-In, co-owned this one when it played second run general release fare. Despite the second run nature of the Etowah, in 1965 he managed to outbid the larger first run theater in Gadsden, the Pitman, for the exclusive rights to show “The Sound of Music” in the area. It was this theater’s biggest hit ever.

The Etowah Theatre was a beautiful theater in its hey days of the 1950s and 1960s. This photo is the way it looks now after it has stood abandoned for years.
