Album carefully documenting the construction of The Kent Theaters, Plaza "Rocking Chair" Theater on Phillips Highway (U.S. Hwy #1) in Jacksonville, FL which opened its doors January 27, 1967. Photographs thoroughly detail construction, from groundbreaking to completion: concrete placement, steel erection, masonry, interior construction, placement of the rooftop A/C unit, signage, projector and speaker installation, workers and laborers, as well as finished shots of the theater's interior and exterior. All black and white construction images dated, beginning 9/1/66 and ending 1/23/67. The six color photos are undated, though were likely captured on or around the theater's opening day to showcase the finished work. A full page, color ad from January 26, 1967 issue of the JACKSONVILLE JOURNAL is laid-in. The Plaza's amenities, including ample parking, ("1,000 FREE PARKING SPACES" according to the ad), rocking chair seats and easy access to expressways, marked a sea change in options for the moviegoing public - a move that culminates in our modern multiplexes.
