Hi all I went to this theater when it was just one screen I watch “Stars Wars” here in 1977 and in the late
80s a wall was built and now two screens I am not sure
when it closed

Hello. I wanted to clarify a few things about this place. I worked here from 1991-1994. It was a second run two screen house. I started as a ticket/concessions worker, and immediately took an interest in projection. By 1993, I was the only projectionist left. Jimmy Cannon was the manager, and had been for years. He also worked there in the 70’s when he was in high school. He said that the place was originally opened by Albert Weis in the early 70’s. It was a single screen 800 seat house back then. Swamp above is correct, it was divided into two screens in the mid 80’s. It changed hands many times…GTC,UA,etc. And finally ended up back in the hands of Georgia Theater Company 2. That’s who owned it when I was there. After I graduated, I left and heard it closed soon after. Maybe early 1995? Many good memories there.
