Five Points Theater

The theater was opened in the Five Points district of Columbia on July 1, 1939. It remained open until the 1960’s, when its small size made it unappealing compared to larger theaters. For a period in the 1950’s, the theater screened foreign films in a series called the Columbia Finer Films Committee.

The building was acquired in 2000, and the neon marquee was restored. The building appears to serve as a bar.

The bar is called the Knock Knock Club.
