Uploaded Oct 3, 1950 ad for the Ewing.
Address is 1581 Dr Thomas Walker Rd. There is a U.S. Post Office next door to the left at 1579. Highway 58 is actually Wilderness Road and is behind it by a block. Satellite view shows the Ewing Theatre has no roof remaining. The print ad Mike Rogers posted in 2014 was for “The Patsy”, starring Jerry Lewis and Ina Balin pictured in it.
THANKS BILL, finally got the ad on……
I saw the Dino De Laurentis version of King Kong here in 1976. The inside was dank and the seating was uncomfortable.
Mike, from the looks of things, you wouldn’t have had to look hard to find something rotten in this old theater. There was a “NO TRESPASSING – VIOLATERS WILL BE PROSECUTED” sign on the door, and a lot of interior damage visible through the broken windows, so I’d say that enough vandalism has occurred to make this a serious threat.
Dec.16 1978 and the Ewing is playing “THE DEEP” long after a summer run.
May 1 1979 “ANIMAL HOUSE” hits Ewing and movies are never the same in this small town.
June 1 1979 and “SUPERMAN” opens.Kids under 5 free.“BUCK ROGERS ” is booked next.
You wonder if there were any one sheets in that theatre.I am afraid i would have got a flashlight and found an old rotten exit door and explore.I couldn’t just snap a picture.
NOW Showing at the Ewing theatre is “PATSY” nothing else but “PATSY” in the old newspaper ad and a picture of a dark headed lady,Don’t have a clue about the movie"PATSY" but it played Fri,Sat, and Sunday, Oct 23,24,25, 1964. ELVIS WAS NEXT,I think we all know him, in “G.I.BLUES”
Here is a 2009 photo of what remains of the Ewing Theatre.
