I got to see “Song of the South” for the very first time in this theatre. My parents took my cousins, my sister, and me to see SotS when Disney re-released it in the early 1970s. What a wonderful experience!

The most recent update at the MySpace page of Sobo’s Main Theatres advertises Hellboy II: The Golden Army as the current attraction. As that movie was released in 2008, that’s probably when the theater closed. The last blog post by the theater’s manager is dated June 16, 2008.
