The Thompson Theatre was opened on July 20, 1939, replacing an earlier Thompson Theatre which opened in 1936 and was destroyed by fire on January 3, 1939. Seating was provided for 484. It was closed in 1959.

In the 1983 lettering on the King Theatre’s marquee said "closed for repairs." The white building trimmed in red was reminiscent of a castle. It had the familiar pointed marquee sheltering the entrance and topping the marquee was "King" in large red letters highlighted with neon.

It reopened as the Indie Cinema in July 2015.

Still standing on Main Street, off Neshoba, the King Theatre has lost its marquee, but is recognizable on photo right.

The Thompson Theatre opened with 464 seats in August of 1939 by Glen Thompson which replaced the original Thompson Theatre which had opened in 1936 but was burned on January 3, 1939. The 300-seat theatre was the Princess Theatre which Thompson also operated through October of 1950. On October 15, 1954, the theatre converted to widescreen projection to present CinemaScope films beginning with “The Robe.” It may mean little, but ads discontinue at the 20-year mark of the theater.
