Road Trip 4: Adele Theater in Eatonton, Georgia.

From the courthouse go north on North Madison. The Adele Theater is in the first block. Stop and peek into the theater, now part of Blackwell Furniture Company. Keep going north to see the houses and churches.

"The Adele Theater opened on November 6, 1914 and closed in 1923. Silent movies and traveling shows were among the most common entertainments shown here. In the 1940s it was the Eatonton Furniture store."
