The Capri Community Film Society which has been leasing the theater on a month-to-month basis for twenty-seven years has finally been able to buy the theater, giving it a more stable future: View link

An item about the Clover Theatre, as yet unnamed, appeared in Boxoffice, August 17, 1940. The item gave the location as Cloverdale Road and Fairview Avenue. The new house for R.B. Wilby’s Alabama Theatres was designed by Montgomery architect William J. Okel. Okel designed a few other theaters but I’ve not yet tracked them down.

Boxoffice Magazine of July 19, 1941, said the Clover Theatre had opened on Friday (the 19th was a Saturday that year.) According to Boxoffice, the theater had “…ultra-modern appointments and decorations.” The seating capacity was given as 700. The first manager was Don W. Randolph, formerly of Asheville, N.C., and the projectionist was B.P. Bopkins.
