From Darren Snow, the king of Mystery Photos!

"It's in the town of Fulton, which straddles KY and TN. I'm pretty sure this theater was on the KY side, but I could find no evidence of a name. Photo by me, 1998."

Fulton, KY had 3 movie theatres (as of 1947): the Fulton, the Orpheum, and the Strand. This has got to be one of those.

Fulton, Kentucky as of 1932 had three theatres.
  • State 250 seats (Warner)
    Grand 300 seats
    Orpheum 400 seats (Warner)
As of 1946 Fulton had three theatres.
  • Fulton 250 seats (Publix)
    Strand 320 seats (Publix)
    Orpheum 487 seats (Publix)
So it looks like the State became the Fulton during this
time. And the Grand became the Strand during this time also.
A lot of times during remodels the theatre also got reseated
, and that's what this looks like.
