The Dixie Theatre was launched Dixie Amusement Circuit. It opened after an address by Yahoo City Mayor D.M. Love and a celebration simulcast on WJDX in Jackson. The theatre opened with 900 seats – 700 on the lower floor and 200 in the balcony for persons of color. The opening on July 18, 1938 featured the Ritz Brothers in “Kentucky Moonshine.” The theatre was built within the original Kennington Building in a plan announced in 1938. The theatre completed a 20 year leasing period going out of business with “The Ten Commandments” on February 15, 1958.
