Old Martin Theater demolished

DOTHAN, AL — The beautiful Martin Theater on Main Street was torn down in late August of 2008 to make way for more downtown parking. How sad.

When I was a child I saw “The Sound of Music” there and also many, many Disney movies. Wonderful memories! Another cinema treasure lost forever!

Generally speaking, when the citizens elect officials who aren’t in cohoots with developers or other greedy politicians. Check a politician’s campaign contributions, and see who they’re most heavily funded by. That should talk.
