Demolition Begins On Popular Tallahassee Landmark

Tallahassee, Florida - June 19, 2012 -

The Miracle Five Theater showed its last flick back in August of 2011. Now the building is being torn down.

It's been around for more than 40 years. Now a popular landmark says its goodbye.

"It's just a landmark that's been torn down," said neighborhood resident Thaliah Jones.

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.
