Art Theatre

A conversion of a former retail store. The 135-seat Art Theatre opened on August 21, 1967 with Anouk Aimee in “A Man and a Woman” which ran for 6-weeks. It went over to screening adult films in the late-1960’s and early-1970’s.

Well, I dealt with Kenny Rogers in Athens,He had a big horse farm there,It is onGEORGIA SQUARE CINEMAS GCC on CT,but you have read it. He never wanted in free,And really in Augusta I don’t remember JAMES BROWN ever asking to come in for free. If I spotted him in line i would quietly escort him in and he got such a big kick out of. I guess you got to do some small talk,but I am sure most locals left them alone.

few Flicks Joe Goode had, 6-31 -71 “GUESS WHAT WE LEARNED IN SCHOOL TODAY” Rated R,Next week he was playing,and it is hard to believe,“GONE WITH THE WIND”,Never would have guessed it. Opening June 25 1971 was “GIMME SHELTER”, “BENJAMIN” rated X plays 8-24-69.

Nov.28 1969 the X rated “FANNY HILL” opens. July 7 1967 he has “MAN AND A WOMAN” rated X. Nov.7 1969 and “PAMELA.PAMELA,YOU ARE…” rated X. Dec 25 1970 and “END OF THE ROAD” rated X is showing. May 8 1970 “I,A WOMAN,part II” rated X. Dec.22 1967 “CLIMAX” wasn’t a movie code then, Adults only.

Wide selection of films for sure at the Art theatre.

JOE GOODE had changed the name to CINEMA ONE during the KUng-FU era.Playing “ENTER THE DRAGON” and “TRIPLE IRONS” wonder what the “Dragon” print looked like.
