The Trace Theater is located at the corner of Market Street and Carroll Street in Port Gibson and is considered a landmark in the city.
According to cinematreasures.org, the Trace Theatre was owned and operated by the Ewings of Fayette as was the Fay Theatre in Fayette and the AutoVue Drive-In in Lorman.
Other records show the building suffered a fire in 1948 and another in 1968 that reportedly caused the business to shut down for good.The theater had been closed for 52 years? Amazing.
I previously wrote about Port Gibson in 2016, 2019, and again in 2019.
