THE CAUSE Originally built and opened in 1945, the MARS took the place of the original Springfield Theater built in 1938. The MARS was considered a community staple until it was closed in 1957. Before closing, the MARS showed many popular films and shows of the day, including Gone With the Wind and many popular bands of the time. The MARS also featured local talents and live music on its stage. The proceeds from the Mars Theatre Benefit Ride will be donated to the Mars Theatre in Downtown Springfield. Construction is nearly finished and the Grand Opening will be the same weekend as this ride. There will be movies and tours all weekend and riders are encouraged to participate. Coupons for Opening Weekend events will be given to all riders. THE RIDE Riders will be able to choose a 18, 37, or 65 mile course, or to participate in a much shorter family fun ride through downtown Springfield. Registration will be between 7:30 and 8 am in the Mars Theatre Parking Lot in downtown Springfield (109 S Laurel Street, Springfield, GA), with the ride to begin at 8:00am. The 18 mile course will take you out to Historic Ebenezer and the 37 and 62 mile courses will bring you out through Clyo, Marlow and Historic Guyton. This will be a great opportunity to see the sights and ride the roads of Effingham County. Please see our website for more route information and route maps.
