I, too recall seeing Amityville Horror the night before the theater burned . . . just like the house in the movie. Yes, that was 1979, and the Quad opened at Carolina East Center Dec. 1980.

I was there that night when the usher came running down the isle, and told everybody to evacuate the bldg, and as soon as we got out the roof fell in.

The lady in the picture is Mable Riddick. My father Woody Corbett was employed by the Pitt Theater from a young man for about 30 years. My uncle, Red Corbett was employed with the State Theater. I remember going to work with my dad as a young child. The State had stage shows and that was so exciting when the Cowboys would come to town.

Burned and closed in 1979. The last movie I saw there was the original Amityville Horror. This was just before the opening of the Plitt theaters next to Carolina East Mall.

This was the Pitt Theater on Evans Street. The building is no longer there. It was beside Ridgeway Opticians.
