Thunder Road played at The Decatur Theatre back in Oct. of 58.
Thunder Road is the title of a 1958 drama-crime film about running moonshine in the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee in the early 1950s. It was directed by Arthur Ripley and starred Robert Mitchum, who also produced the film and co-wrote the screenplay, and is rumored to have directed much of the film himself. He also co-wrote (with Don Raye) the theme song, "The Ballad of Thunder Road".

The film became a cult classic and continued to play at drive-in movie theaters in some Southeastern markets through the 1970s and 1980s.

Thunder Road played at The Decatur Theatre from Oct 16 thru Oct 18, 1958.
