Here is a 1986 photo of The Pitcher Show from American Classic Images. The November 11, 1983, issue of The Tuscaloosa News said that the Tide I & II Theatre would reopen that night as The Pitcher Show (Google News.) As the Pitcher Show the house served beer, wine, and food along with the movies. Despite the change in format, the house was still being operated by Cobb Theatres.
The February 5, 1969, issue of the News had an ad for the Tide I & II saying that there would be an open house on Thursday night (February 6) and the gala opening of the theater would take place on Friday, February 7.
Another one of the theaters from my college days. We spent a lot of time here- and for a small theater, they had a great video games in the lobby!
