“Pufnstuff”…“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”…“Fiddler on the Roof”…“The Bermuda Triangle”??? & “In Search of Noah’s Ark”??? (there were like 2 or 3 of those strange documentary-type movies out back then)…and some BORING, BORING, BORING movie about some teacher that went down to some poor part of the country to, well, to teach! (Hey..I was a little kid whose mom dragged me to this movie! She had to feed me candy to keep from whining, and then I just fell asleep! She also bought me a couple of comic books as part of the deal, from what I remember!)…….those were just some of the first movies I ever saw in Augusta, as a kid. Walk in, box office was on the left, concession stand was on the left (pretty small one), and bathrooms were straight ahead! The picture that was on here earlier reminded me that behind the theater, across the street was the Navy National Guard place…I remember the anchor out front. Also, down the street, was a Dairy Queen with a small, handmade village that was built by the firemen at the fire station right across the street. People would always bring their kids, or their dates, to that little village. Daniel Village Theater was one of my favorites growing up!

Do I remember correctly that the golf course where the Masters is played every April is on or near the road leading up to the former Daniel Village Theater?

I have somehow forgotten to mention the large road marquee at DANIEL VILLAGE.It wasn’t anywhere near the Theatre but on Gordon Highway directing folks onto Highland Ave to DANIEL VILLAGE. It must have stood 50 feet or more above the road and must have been hairy to change letters. It was there for a long time before it was removed and I never never really knew why unless it was so far away at a couple of miles.

NO it wasn’t that Big. I think DANIEL VILLAGE might have been just a bit smaller than National Hills.

TLSLOEWS on March 1, 2010 at 8:01 pm

It wasn’t a bad theatre until GEORGIA THEATRES split it down the middle.
