Larry Ralston is a man who many know for his photography. Others know him from the Premiere 6 movie theater at Jackson Heights Plaza.
The locally owned movie theater has announced that they plan to be closed for movies during the day on Saturday and instead, only open for their nighttime showings - starting at 5:30, Saturday night (7/31/21). The lack of daytime movies on Saturday is due to the respect the workers at the theater had for Ralston and to enable employees attending his funeral.
Ralston passed away around 3:45AM this past Saturday morning (6/24/2021), after a short battle with cancer.
Visitation for Larry Ralston will be held this coming Saturday (7/31/2021) from 1:00 to 3:00PM at Jennings & Ayers Funeral Home (820 South Church St., Murfreesboro, TN). The memorial service will be at the funeral home at 3:00PM, with the burial to follow at Roselawn Cemetery.
Theater Manager Shelby Brantley said, "Larry Ralston was one of the best men that I ever met. He was kind, loyal, and caring. I had the privilege of working with him for the past eleven years, and while I spent most of that time technically being Larry’s boss, I have learned a lot from him. We will miss his jokes and the red nose he wore in most pictures that brought joy and laughter, his friendly demeanor and smile that greeted everyone that came through the front doors, and his stories and advice that have helped us all grow in to the people we are today. Larry Ralston was loved so very much by all of the employees and patrons of Premiere 6! Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers."
He leaves behind a daughter, Sara Randall and son, Spencer Ralston.
