JohnTChance commented about Circle Theatre on Mar 20, 2009 at 4:24 pm

The Circle was a great resource for film lovers, with an eclectic programming schedule that mixed classics with cult. Before VCRs and cable TV, venues like this were the only way to catch great films that may have had a limited local release. Miss those days!

This drive-in was pedestrian friendly, with benches near the concession stand. When I was a kid, I used to take the bus here to catch films like The Silencers & Sons Of Katie Elder.

Tom Laughlin selected this theater for a test screening of “The Trial Of Billy Jack” in 1974, and the crowds were huge.
