Stewart and Everett also had another twin cinema that operated in the town…one of two theatres that were in Rocky Mount. One was the Englewood Twin,aka Cinema 1 & 2,and the other was the Oakwood Twin which is NOT listed on this site that opened around 1975 or 1976.

This was my first theatre as manager. Later opened Oakwood twin in 1977. Stewart & Everett Theatres were bought by Carmike Cinemas in 1986. Would like to hear from anyone that worked at these theatres in the 70’s and early 80’s.

Both the Englewood and Oakwood Cinemas were demolished and replaced by banks (Wachovia-now Wells Fargo-replaced the Englewood and Southern Bank replaced the Oakwood).
