Miller Theater

The Miller Theater, located at 708 Broad Street in downtown Augusta, opened in 1940 and was considered one of the finest theaters in the South. Most notably, in 1957, the Miller held the movie premier of The Three Faces of Eve, an adaptation of a case study of a woman who suffered from what was then known as multiple personality disorder. The relatively unknown Joanne Woodward starred in the film for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.  The Theater closed in the mid 80s as multiplex theaters became the norm. Over the years, the Theater had been damaged by the elements and was on the verge of being condemned. The Miller was purchased in 2005 and the roof was repaired to stop further damage to the structure. With a financing plan in place, renovation is awaiting consultant reports.


  1. So many beautiful buildings you've photographed - nice!

  2. I love old theaters. I hope they renovate it.
