Working at the College of Charleston, I've had numerous opportunities to take photographs around campus. One of my favorite photo shoots was of Sottile Theatre.
Originally named the Gloria Theatre, Sottile Theatre opened its doors on August 20, 1927. Built by Albert Sottile, President of the Pastime Amusement Company, the theatre served as both a vaudeville house and movie theater. The movie house was the largest of its kind in South Carolina, eventually hosting the state premiere of “Gone with the Wind.”
Below are a few photographs of Sottile Theatre.
