6.   Did you know…  That the Rivoli Theatre on Chester Street, which is being converted into a youth center by Ground Zero, first opened as Myrtle Beach’s newest movie house on January 19, 1958?  The Rivoli cost $400,000 to build at the time and offered 1,078 seats in rare, air-conditioned comfort.  It operated as a movie theatre until the early 1980s.  The city bought the building in 1999 and subsequently leased it to Ground Zero, which is funding the renovations.  Other early movie houses in Myrtle Beach included the Gloria, the Broadway, the Gayety, the Cinema and the Camelot theatres. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
