The Carolina, downtown Anderson, SC., was operated until its closing
by the Osteen Family. Percy Osteen constructed a new Theatre, named
The Osteen, on N. Main Street, corner Greenville Street when the
Carolina closed. The Carolina ranked 2nd to the State Theatre in
Stature and 1st-run movies. It also featured Grade A Westerns and
was a very popular movie house in the 40’s and 50’s.

From the 1930s a postcard rendering of the Carolina Theater in Anderson.

I assume Jim is right on with his comment about the CAROLINA being a first run House and makes no sense to close a theatre playing Grade A product being Westerns or the latest Jerry Lewis Comedy.

Needs to be listed as demolished. Really ugly ‘modern’ office building there now.
