Inscription.  The Art Deco style of the Georgia Theater, built in 1936, was inspired by the 1925 Paris Exposition. Operated as a movie theater until the 1970s, the building's style was maintained in the 1997 renovation which made it a part of the Averitt Center for the Arts. Named for a Statesboro musical legend, the building is now known as the Emma Kelly Theater.
