Folks used to be able to see movie stars ad the historic Miracle Five Theater located at Midtown in Tallahassee. Now the only thing you see is debris and what's left of the structure. The small theater showed its last flick in August after more than 40 years in the business.
"Yeah it was quite a few people ya know going in there showing movies," said Theodore Harris.
Supermarket chain Whole Foods Market has brought the property and plans on opening a new store at the old plaza.
"Well you know (the store) would be close to the house so that way you wouldn't have to go far like to go get groceries," said Kenneth Harris who lives a block away from the plaza.
So instead of walking home with leftover popcorn, neighbors will start a new tradition of walking home with supper.
