The Villa Theatre was mentioned in the January 24, 1948 issue of Boxoffice, which said that the house had discontinued Sunday shows on January 1. The Villa had been showing movies on Sundays “for several years” the item said.

The Villa was a Martin Theatres operation for a while, as the October 9, 1954 Boxoffice said that the chain had recently sold the house.

The January 8, 1955 issue of Independent Film Journal said that Hubert Countryman and Neal Richardson had installed CinemaScope in their Villa Theatre in Villa Rica.

The most recent mention of the Villa I’ve found in the trade journals is in the October 3, 1960 issue of Boxoffice. The manager at that time was named Thomas Carter.
