The Galaxy Theatre was opened in 1929 as the Watts Theatre. Stewart & Everett bought the Watts Theatre in 1968 and renamed it the Cinema; it closed in 1981. Carmike Cinemas inherited the vacant theater when they bought S&E in 1986, but did not reopen the theater themselves. Instead, the Cinema was leased to an independent operator in 1987 and reopened as the Galaxy Theatre. The Galaxy Theatre closed by 1988 and has since been demolished.

The Viccar Theatre was across the street from the Watts/Cinema/Galaxy Theatre (139 West Main Street), next door to Rose’s 5-10-25 Cent Store. The former Viccar Theatre still stands but has been converted to retail.
