The Camelot Theatre open on June 12 1969 with Mark Lester in “Oliver”. It was a single screen theatre that was owned and operated under Wilbey-Kincey Theatres. By the early-to-mid-1970’s it was a twin cinema (renamed the Camelot 1 & 2) when ABC Southeastern Theatres acquired operations in 1975, and it was soon tripled with a total of 1,163-seats, the largest screen had 553-seats. Later on it came under Plitt Southern Theatres until it was acquired by Carmike Cinema who closed it in April 1990.

This is one of the ABC THEATRES in this town.I am pretty sure there was another and it was lucky enough i think to have played “JAWS” first run.

I worked for ABC THEATRES in Augusta,and got to know a manager in that town and he put me and another ABC THEATRE employee up for a couple of days to save on Hotel rates.

By 1977 this was a triplex.

The only movie I saw there was “The Living Daylights” in 1987. The #1 auditorium had a curved screen and Dolby Stereo. Stereo was a big deal for Myrtle Beach at the time. It is now a restaurant complex.

I managed this theatre for only 4 months in 1987, theatre #1’s screen was curved, and the curtains opened and closed for every show. Cineplex Odeon also ran the Deerfield at Surfside Beach, for I ran ads for both locations.
