Macon’s downtown Bibb Theatre, which opened in the 1930s, has been shuttered for almost 40 years. Now, it’s getting some action.

The façade of the historic theater is playing host to an outdoor classic film series this fall, which kicked off this past weekend with an inaugural lighting of the theater’s billboard.

While the future of the building remains unknown, Macon residents hold fond memories of its past. 

GPB’s Sofi Gratas has more in this audio postcard, where you’ll hear from Emily Hopkins with NewTown Macon, local business owner Scott Mitchell and other Macon residents at a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window.

This is GPB.
