Casino Theatre

The 316-seat Casino Theatre was community centre built as part of Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration (WPA) program in 1937. By 1943 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Lucas and Jenkins. It was demolished in the 1980’s

A new 100-seat Casino Theatre on the site contains an intimate theatre used for both live and film presentation.

Made my first return to St Simons today in over a quarter of a century. While much retains the same, the Casino was demolished in the 1980s and replaced by a rather bland multipurpose entertainment venue. The photos here are of the theatre which currently occupies the site of the former Casino.

This web page has a bit of information about the Casino, and a photo showing that it was clearly not in the building that is on the site today. The old Casino was a nice Georgian Colonial Revival building.
