President Theatre, 1935, Manchester

Originally part of the Martin group, the President Theatre was designed by Atlanta architects McKendree Tucker and Albert Howell. It was named the President, of course, for FDR’s association with the area. After many years of serving Manchester, it closed in the 1980s. It’s being completely restored and is back in business.

      the President Theatre’s website is online as well as our FB page with some update renovation photos. The final renovations are in progress and we are so hoping for a late Fall grand-opening.

    Fantastic Brian, Thanks for posting! Did you ever see the “Flash Gordon’s Trip to Mars” serialized movie which I believe originally came in the mid 30’s? I think architects Tucker and Howell almost certainly did!
