I have more information about this theater.

It initially opened on July 10, 1975 (which, incidentally, was my father’s 30th birthday) as the Columbus Square Twin, replacing the Beverly Theater at Columbus Square Mall. Sometime around 1978 or 1979, two additional screens were added. From the aerial picture, the new auditoriums were the ones that had vertical A/C units (I think) on the top.

In the summer of 1982, four more screens were added. I remember seeing “Annie” in auditorium #8 (the auditorium featured upper right based on the picture). Most of the big films that played at a Martin/Carmike played here until 1988, when the Carmike Cinema 7 was opened. The theater further declined in 1993 when a new theater at Peachtree Mall was built.

Eventually, the theater was closed in 2003, and demolished soon thereafter.

I have added two more photos of the theater courtesy the Facebook group “You Grew Up in Columbus, GA.” Just a couple of shots of the front, but they are now there.
