I managed the Movies at Polo Rd. in the 90s. We did a decent business, but the layout of the lobby and the decor were hopelessly outdated. The small chain that owned the theater, Eastern Federal Corp., wasn’t very interested in the theater business; it was just a side business for them.

Does anyone know if this theater in the past ran 35mm film or was it digital? thanks.

Eastern Federal was originally the H.B. Misielmann Company. They had theaters in NC, SC, GA and FL. They also owned American Theater Supply which supplied all of their theaters with a number of supplies. A previous poster was correct, while they were in the theater business it was often run like a sideline. They were big on the property end of things, they owned quite a few locations out right as well as the shopping centers that they were attached to. They also like to do ground leases in locations where they did not control the whole shopping center.

davidcoppock: It was near where a street named Polo Rd. intersected Two Notch Rd. I know that is the least exciting answer.
