1932: Notes on the First Theatre on Main Street, Folkston, Georgia
Items from Charlton County Herald:
C.J. Passieu has contracted for a talkie of the latest model to be placed in the building next door to Stapleton Pharmacy at an early date. He advises he expects to have it installed on the basis of two shows a week with dates for neighboring towns for other nights.
C.J. Passieu has installed one of the latest machines producing movie and talkie combinations and the place between Stapleton’s drug store and Passieu Motor Co. has been overhauled and is ready for the first attraction to be presented Friday. The name of this new amusement palace is Passieu’s Theater Shows and shows will be presented every Friday and Saturday evening.
The talkie and movie show the last week was late in getting a start on account of non-preparation, but that has been remedied and in future the show will begin on time every Friday and Saturday night.
C.J. Passieu and Elbert Altman were visitors to Valdosta this week. They went to secure chairs for the Passieu Theater.
