Return of the Sticky Foot
Except that the new owners sound determined to make it into a nice theater. The old Choctaw Cinema is readying to re-open sometime around late August, according to this article in the Sea Coast Echo. Sounds like nice place, maybe we'll have to come up with a better nickname than "The Sticky Foot" for this place. Brother, did that name ever fit before. I think the only time the floor in that place ever got washed was when it was flooded by Katrina. But that's all in the past now, and the new owners seem committed to having a more upscale theater.
I wish them well, and they'll definitely be getting some of my movie ticket dollars. Not having to drive to Gulfport to see a first-run movie will be a real treat, and doubly so on those rainy afternoons that seem to be made for moviegoing. A nice theater less than a mile away, that is a real step up.
