The Peoples Theatre was opened on June 13, 1947 with Randolph Scott in “Abilene Town”. Nine cents admission in the late-1940’s and through the mid-1950’s when I attended the old shoot'em up Westerns and Abbott and Costello movies.
Saturdays were twenty five cents for two features, a serial, and several cartoons. It was a seedy place, but what the heck, we weren’t the health inspectors. Whites sat on the main floor and blacks in the balcony.
My brother and I spent happy hours there. It was closed in 1957.
