This former movie house, which opened near the turn of the 20th century as the Knights of Pythias Temple, was converted into office space in the late-1990’s.

The Ozark was showing “How Sweet It Is!” with James Garner and Debbie Reynolds on 10/4/68. Other local theaters were the Uark, Palace and the 71 Drive-In.

A sad view of the Ozark Theater from 1987 in Fayetteville.

I watched many movies in the Ozark Theater as a young boy in the early ‘70s. I remember a lot of Disney films, a Planet of the Apes marathon called “Go Ape!” and stuff like The Poseiden Adventure. I had no idea that it had been around as long as it had.
Does anyone have any info on where to find more history and photos of it?

Fido42, I also saw the Planet of the Apes marathon! Many high school students went and passed around LSD and marijuana…
