Pot Belly's Movie Theater to close in St. Augustine | News
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- An iconic movie theater on the First Coast is closing its doors.
After 36 years in business, the owners of Pot Belly's Movie Theater in St. Augustine are retiring.
For years it was the only movie theater in the old town.
It was also a place for owner Kenny Pierce to show off his massive collections of all kinds of things including movie memorabilia, lunch boxes, toy cars and model planes.
Owner Kenny Pierce says it's time he and his wife got some rest, and most of the collectibles will be sold at auction.
Pierce said, "I'm going to be 72 years old this Thursday. The kids couldn't handle all this. It's just too much stuff. What do you do? Do you store it? I've got two sheds already full of it!"
The auction will be Saturday, April 26
at Pot Belly's in St. Augustine.
The people who plan to buy the building aim to keep it a movie theater and plan to renovate the old building.
