The Ellis Theater, located at 104 South Court Street in Cleveland, MS, opened to a packed house on Thursday, January 7, 1938, with two showings of “Vogues of 1938.”  According to The Bolivar Commercial January 8, 1938:  “The new theatre, which has an unusually large auditorium for a town of this size, is substantially and attractively built, and is beautifully lighted within and without.”   For over 40 years, the Ellis was a place of entertainment for Cleveland and the surrounding area. After 1970 the Twin Cinema on Highway 8 West opened and the Ellis was sold to Rhodes Printing Company. The new owner renovated the interior of the building and leveled the theater floor to make work space for a print shop, but made very few changes to the exterior of the building.

Mississippi Retro Apparel are wearable flashbacks from years gone by.

They are for the crowd that knew the bars, clubs, restaurants and music of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. They are reminders of the best of times spent with family and friends at the best places, those places, back then.
