I’ve seen many Georgia theatres in my travels and even had the opportunity to photograph some for the Fox Theatre Institute a couple of years ago, but this is one of the most unique and fascinating I’ve yet encountered. Designed by the architectural firm of Tucker & Howell, it was originally owned by the LAM Amusement Company. Over the years, it’s been painted in multi-colors and with a black and white theme, but owner Ken Browning told me that the current palette is closest to the original. It shows first-run movies and has recently been digitized. The allegorical reliefs (Drama & Music) flanking the entrance were designed by Georgia sculptor Julian Hoke Harris.
