Either this, or one nearby it, began in about 1977 as the Tupelo Twin Cinema. (one of the first movies I saw at this theater was a two-bit indie flick called “Star Wars”)

Lived in Tupelo during much of the 1970s, grade-school years. Here’s some info for that era.

Back then the Malco chain out of Memphis owned all the theaters in Tupelo, except just one: the Lee “Movietown” Drive-In.

There were two other theaters not included: 1) MALL THEATER, opened ca. 1970. Single-screen venue located in the Tupelo Mall (now Gloster Creek Village). Probably closed in the ‘80s.

2) MALCO THEATER, on West Main. I want to say it was built in 1967 or 1968. A second screen was added in about 1975. All the Disney movies were shown at the Malco.
