This theater was actually called the Towers Theatre, as it was located next to Towers Mall in Roanoke. It has been demolished, and a newer shopping center was put in its place.

As a kid in the mid 70’s, I have fond memories of a program at Towers Theatre that offered summer kid movies for only 10 cents per movie, once a week morning shows. Movies such as Hello Down There, Support Your Local Sheriff!, The Shakiest Gun in the West, and The Reluctant Astronaut. I miss those days, along with Mt. Vernon Elementary School.
