Looked like it was something like a J-M theatre by logo, wonder if Gene Boggs is the Shopping center.

What I’ve done in situations like this was to contact a local real estate agent through the agency’s website. They generally are aware of any vacant and available properties.

I was wondering is it possible to look up old movie archives from this theater?

The Gene Boggs Corporation was organized in June 1971 by Dr. John Miller and Mr. Gene Boggs, and operates a total of seven theaters and two drive-ins across Arkansas, with two in West Helena, two in Osceola, and one each in Benton, Forrest City, Little Rock, Hot Springs, and Stuttgart.

West Helena’s 400-seat (200 in each auditorium) Gene Boggs Twin Cinema opened its doors on October 4, 1973 with “Oklahoma Crude” at Screen 1 and “Living Free” at Screen 2.

The twin closed for the final time in October 1996.
