News About This Theater

The Jordan late 90

The Jordan Theatre was built for the Blatt Bros. circuit in 1946, their eighteenth theatre. All seating was located on a single floor. Key features of the exterior included double doors w/circle windows (3 circles on each door), a ticket booth, and the Jordan name on top of the marquee.

The Jordan Theatre was closed sometime in the late-1980’s and remained unused until it was demolished in November 2004.

A photo of a model of the Jordan Theatre was published in Boxoffice, January 5, 1946. The new theater was “…to be dedicated this month” the caption said. The architect of the Jordan was the prolific Victor A. Rigaumont.

Joe: The Jordan model photo was fascinating to see! It’s just a shame the community doesn’t still have this lovely art moderne theatre.

No,no i just saw the movie mentioned and I remember us playing at a General Cinema that i was the assistant manager at. A lot of these movie titles you forget and then you see them pop up on CT.

I also grew up in Greenville and still live here although i was not born till 1963 some 20 odd years after the Jordan was built i saw many films there seeing these pictures brought back the memories of a child’s amazement and wonder of going to the movies thank you i thought i’d never see it again in my lifetime.
