Unfavorite 1 person favorited this theater

Spotted this closed-up theatre in a Winnsboro, S.C. newspaper. A politican was thanking voters on the marquee. The theatre looked long closed.

Boy,Chuck I was so afraid of that.It most likely was.I assumed Wrong again.why can’t newspaper editors catch captions such as what I saw and have “such and such is thanking voters on the old Midland Theatre in such and such city”.It had to be somewhere in the Winnsboro area.

This may help (or perhaps even make the situation murkier). According to the Rivest List for northern South Carolina, there was a very short-lived Midland Theater in Camden, SC, which is about thirty miles southeast of Winnsboro. If the Rivest data is correct, it lasted for a brief time around 2000.

But perhaps complicating the issue is the fact that certain online search results indicate that a either a theater or a theater company called Midland Theatres, Inc, is or was located in Camden SC at 1107 Windsor Drive. However, Google street view shows the area to be residential.

Confusing the issue further, is the fact that some directory entries indicate that 1107 Windsor Drive is the address for the Little Theater, a small, still-functioning twin theater. I think, though this is erroneous as the Little Theater has an entry here on CT /theaters/22484/ which locates it at 506 DeKalb St., as other online directory entries do.

For what it is worth the Marquee looked new compared to the Theatre.
