Roth E. Hook had been operating the town’s Eutaw Theatre and decided the time for a more modern facility was after the War. Hook built the Hook Theatre. Architect Wilmot C. Douglas of Birmingham designed the facilty. It launched May 9, 1947 with “Song of the South.” With 760 seats, RCA sound, and Brenkert projectors, the Hook had a good run into the television age before closing.

The building at that address is a Quonset hut. Very popular for theatres post-WWII.
