The Florence Times reported in August of 1957, “The Princess Theatre, located at 213 East Tennessee Street in Florence, will be closed for an indefinite period as a result of an early morning fire which caused considerable damage to the ceiling and balcony in addition to smoke and water damage to the entire structure.”

That would explain why the Princess was remodeled and opened again in 1958.

There is a newer carpet store on the corner of Seminary and E. Tennessee, and next to that, where 215 E. Tennessee would be, a small building that bears no relation to the exterior view posted on 6/17/07. It looks like the theater was razed and a church built on part of the property.

Here is an interior view circa 1958 after the remodel.
