This letter from the Junius D. Grimes Papers depicts White’s Theatre located on Fifth Street in Greenville. The theatre had been built by Samuel T. White some five years before the letter was written. Initially this facility provided a venue for both live acts and motion pictures. Later, as the State and Park theatres, it showed only movies. The Greenville Redevelopment Commission purchased the building in 2008 with the hope of restoring it for public use.
