An article about Oscar Lam in the June 26, 1937, issue of Boxoffice Magazine mentions that he operated both the Rockmart and the Joy Theatres in Rockmart. I’ve found no mentions of a Palace Theatre in Rockmart as yet, but perhaps it became the Joy.

A mention of the Rockmart Theatre in the April 2, 1973, issue of Boxoffice says that it had been remodeled and would reopen early that month.
