Abandoned Theatre, Pitts

While photographing in Pitts one day, I was told that this was the old movie theatre. Though it’s hard to imagine a town as small as Pitts having a theatre, it was once a much busier place. Robert Jett notes that this was Jett’s Hardware, operated by his father, E. B. Jett, from about 1955 to 1960; he confirms that it was used as a theatre before then.

    My grandmother remembers this being a theater. It’s my fave building in Pitts.

  2. Is this the town we visited? That theatre sure looks familiar!

    Don’t forget, all you needed for a movie theatre was a sheet and a projector.

  4. This was my dads ( E.B. JETT ) HDW STORE FROM ABOUT 1955 TO 1960 AND IT WAS A THEATER BEFORE THAT

    Pitts is the “Gateway to Seville.” (pronunciation: See-ville)
