Garden Hills Theatre to close

posted by StanMalone on October 25, 2006 at 4:51 am

ATLANTA, GA — The Garden Hills Theatree is closing after about 65 years of near constant operation. This is yet another example of the inability of old single screen theatres to compete with the megaplexes of today, even in the “art house” niche.

To read more about this, visitAccess Atlanta. Registration is required and it is good through 10/30/06 when it will move to the archives where you will have to pay to see it.

Several personal histories and a detailed description of this site are in the comment section of its Cinema Treasures page.

This is indeed too bad to see another theater go. Perhaps someone will be able purchase it to revitalize and have a multiple purpose venue. The Internet is a very nice audience source using webcams, in addition to having a live theater audience. Sometimes radio and television stations are piped in to broadcast live performances and other events, such as opera.

This theater appears capable of being listed on a historical society list. It may be also nice if it had an orchestra pit.

I do wish the theater the very best of luck!

Please do have a very nice day!
