Classy guy SAJ. I dealt with your type at the IMPERIAL in Augusta where Blacks could set anywhere,funny thing James Brown would always catch a movie at the IMPERIAL he wanted to sit in the Balcony first row House left.He was bit more classy than you.

The Dosta Theatre was fabricated from an earlier storefront building. Newspaper accounts claimed that the new exterior facade cost “$30,000”. The theatre had its official opening on Monday, May 5, 1941.

I remember the Dosta Theater during the early 50’s when Blacks were forced to sit in the balcony. During intermission we entertained ourselves by dumping cups of soda (and piss!), pop corn, and assorted debris over the railing on unsuspecting whites sitting below. We were determined to get even with Georgia crackers “by any means necessary”.
