MARIETTA—On Friday, August 25th, 2017, the Marietta Museum of History continues its popular monthly program, the Remember When Club. The Club explores what life was like in Cobb County when Highway 41 was known as the 4 lane, everyday shopping was done on the Square and life was just a little bit simpler.
The Remember When Club discusses a different topic each month and encourages the audience to participate by sharing their memories as well. This month we will be focusing on the drive-ins and movie theatres in and around Marietta. We will have some unique guests at this RWC who offer firsthand perspectives on one of our favorite pastimes. Bonnie and James Zimmerman will discuss places such as the Strand and Cobb Theatres on the Square. Richard Brown, a projectionist at the Strand Theater, will also be here to share his perspective from working behind the scenes! There will also be memories about the Bell, Belmont Hills theatres and the Martin, Georgia, Fair Oaks and Marbro Twin drive-ins.
This event is held the 4th Friday of every month through October in the first Floor Virginia Tumlin Room at 10:30am. If you have a topic that you think would be good for the club or know of a person who could speak on our upcoming topic(s), please contact Museum staff at 770-794-5710 or firstname.lastname@example.org
