Decatur Theatre

Great little theater that was located near the Courthouse Square. The Decatur Theatre was opened in 1940.

It was closed and demolished in the late-1970’s.

You did a nice job on the website. Too bad this theater is now a parking lot.

Saw Woody Allen’s “What’s Up, Tiger Lilly?” at the Decatur in 1966.
Funny how one remembers odd tidbits, isn’t it?
