Clinch Theatre

The Amusu Theatre was opened by 1914. It was possibly closed for many years as it doesn’t appear in editions of Film Daily Yearbook until 1935. By 1936 it had been renamed Clinch Theatre.

many older residents remember the clinch and remember going to it when they were kids when living in the Tazewell area. most often talk about the clinch and remember the good times and movies they seen there. it looked like a fine cinema and a great experience for so many residents of Tazewell county.

Not that it really has anything to do with this,but there is a TAZEWELL,TENN Drive-in on CT.When i saw Tazewell first I thought I had some how missed a theatre,but you are in Tazewell, VA. Wonder how far they are from each other.
