The Southgate 4 was the biggest, best theater in the downriver area, and I spent a significant portion of my childhood there. I was horrified when it was tied up for over six months showing some awful gangster movie called “The Godfather”.
It started out as a single screen on October 8, 1969, designed by architect Louis Wiltse, then later a building was added to the back increasing the number of screens to three. Then the main house was divided in half.
The Southgate sat next to the Fort George Drive-In.
