Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Veteran showman Theo Miller had been in the film exhibition business more than 25 years and got permission to convert a retail business into the Hawk Theatre during World War II in downtown Hawkins in 1942, apparently the city’s first movie theater. In January of 1947, the theatre got a refresh including its new and final front and new Western Electric from new owner Roy DeViney who purchased it from Miller in December of 1946.

The theatre appears to have gone out of business in 1958 and was offered for sale. It was not reopened ending after 15 years of operation.
