The Georgia Theater


The art deco style of the Georgia Theater, built in 1936, was inspired by the 1925 Paris Exposition. Operated as a movie theater until the 1970s, the buildings style was maintained in the 1997 renovation which made it a part of the Averitt Center for the Arts. Named for the Statesboro musical legend, the building is now known is the Emma Kelly Theater.
