A quarter to go see a movie at the Canton Theatre

At one time, a quarter could get you an afternoon’s movie entertainment at the Canton Theater. In this movie ticket from the movie house (now housed at the Cherokee County Historical Society), the admission price is just 25 cents — that’s just 21 cents plus 4 cents tax.

There’s no date on the ticket, but with an admission price of a quarter, perhaps 1950s or 1960s?
