The Forest Theater on South White Street, circa 1942, was a popular destination for college students and town residents, particularly after it became the first local business to install air-conditioning.
In the first part of the 20th century, the town had two movie theaters, and a ticket cost 12-cents.
The Collegiate and the Forest both closed after the college left town.
