President Theatre, 1935, Manchester

Originally part of the Martin Theatres group, the President was designed by Atlanta architects McKendree Tucker and Albert Howell. It was named the President, of course, for FDR’s association with the area. After many years of serving Manchester, it closed in the 1980s. The facade has been restored but I’m unable to locate much information on the progress of the overall project at this time.

Two things synonymous with Manchester are hills and railroading. The bridge on Fifth Avenue is a good vantage point for both.
