Atlanta Movie Palaces
Jim Auchmutey, a features writer for the Atlanta Journal and former usher at the Atlanta Theatre, has written an article on downtown movie theatres in Atlanta, and the summer film festival at the last remaining movie palace, the Fox Theatre.
This Link will allow free access through Thursday, June 21, 2007, after which it will move to the paid archives. The article contains a link to a slide show of some of these theatres.
One of the most popular pages on this site is that of the new Ziegfeld, in New York. Anyone interested in the Ziegfeld should go to the last two pictures which show Martin’s Rialto. Although much more ornate, with a slightly larger auditorium and smaller lobby, the Ziegfeld is almost identical in floor plan to the Atlanta Rialto.
Wow No comments till now!
Atlanta had some great movie palaces and I was lucky enough to visit several.
