Opened as the Times Theatre on October 25, 1940. The Times Towne Theatre was just about THE house downtown during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Owned by Mid States Theatres, it ran first run must see films. This was back when films ran in one theatre exclusively and the exterior was always redone for whatever film was showing. It seemed to always get the Bond films. Lots of UA. “Tom Jones”, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, “The Fortune Cookie” and others.
On a Saturday night back around 1970, this theatre would sell out all the time. This was before most of the modern multiplexes and this insane massive release of films these days. Word of mouth had a chance to build and if you wanted to go see it, you had to make the effort.
