The New Laurel Theater was a single screen theater which played second run double features. It was opened on January 19, 1945 with Joyce Reynolds in “Janie”. Later renamed Laurel Theater, it was closed in 1974. It reopened as the New Laurel Theatre on April 4, 1975. It sadly closed in 1982 and remained vacant until it was torn down in September 1986.
As a kid, I loved going there as it was in a residential area, close by, across from a middle school. It also had a balcony. It was an independent movie house worth remembering, rare now in these days of big chains.
