Lynchburg Then and Now - The Isis Theater on Main St.

The Isis Theater operated from at least 1918 to 1950 at 615 Main St., and was located squarely in the middle of the south side of the 600 block, a block which is now the site of a Holiday Inn hotel.


Former Lynchburg resident R.D. Floyd says, "I saw many Saturday movies there as a kid. The movie screen was at the front of the building so that when you went in to find your seat the movie was behind you."
