Information for this tour was contributed by Matt Lutthans.

The theatre is now owned and operated by Joe and Marcia, who were married in the theatre. There's a photo on the wall showing the marquee on their wedding day. The previous owners attempted to convert the balcony to a dining/movie space, and that's visible in some photos. Like the Marion in Knoxville, there are two apartments in the space behind the projection booth, but in this case, they are actually being rented out.
