This house must have become the Martin Theatre in late 1950 or early 1951, per this notice in the January 8 issue of Motion Picture Daily: “Martin Theatres of Columbus, Ga., has just opened their new 1,159-seat theatre in Eufaula, Ala.”

My Great-great uncle (brother of my Great-grandmother) owned this as the Lee Theater in the ‘40s. Moses Gaffney Lee. My grandfather worked there just before WWII. Lee also owned another theater in Cuthbert, GA (also to become a Martin/Gem theater) Here is a postcard from wartime that was sent to my grandfather at the theater:

There is a Reproduco Organ ad from the mid-1920’s which mentions the Lee Theatre in Eufala as one of their satisfied customers. This may push back the opening of this theatre by 10 years or imply a previous theatre of the same name.
