Description

The photo shows the movie "Forever Amber" was playing at the Pickens Theater in 1948. The theater was a gathering place for teens and others from around Pickens County since, at times, there were no other theaters in the county. It also provided jobs for teenagers running the projectors and selling popcorn. One person remembers the popcorn machine being pushed to the open door, causing the aroma of popcorn to fill the Main Street of Reform. About this time, the cost to see a movie was 10 cents, but dimes were hard to come by. But if you could get a dime, you could see two western movies and a serial.
