Information for this tour was contributed by Bill Martin.

Here is a photo of TI Martin and his faithful daschund "Sportie" in front of the Pitt's Theatre in Culpeper, VA. It was taken about 1960. TI was the manager of the Pitt's Theatre chain, and WH Martin was the assistant manager. Their office was located just to the left of the entrance of the theatre. The theatre was sold around 1970 to the R/C Chain who opened a 4-plex across the street a few years ago. At the time that R/C purchased the cinema, it was renamed to the "State".
