Now called AmC Fork and Spoon. !
Welcome to the movie biz …….
Theatres do not have to enforce ratings they are a guideline .
This was one of the best times in the movie biz in NYC . I had just been transferred to the Warner Twin ( the Strand) on the opening week of Cobra we ran 24 hours straight .
As I posted months ago !!
Nice 2013 the Pylon lives on. !
They more I think about it this was one of my least favorite Century theatres as it lack soul ..
One of my all time favorite theatres , with the York theatre in Huntington …
The best of the best movies played here lots in 70 mm!
Bravo …. A use for a theatre other than CVS..
When the Ziegfeld in Ny closes they will long for an IMAX
Like this one !
It does not look good…..
This is not good news for the Ziggy that it is not included in the sale to Bow Tie, it’s days are numbered …
Why the hell is someone’s picture with
My space ???
Dolby atmos is irrelevant in the issue of picture release and theatres when it comes to clearance .
IMAX theatres will get pics filmed for IMAX over all competition .
Howard it is unlikely , IMAX name on a theatre gives that theatre all the benefits of the name .. They have priority bookings over all competition if it is an IMAX film.
Roger ,can’t agree with you —Filmmakers have almost no control were there pictures play . A picture in an IMAX release will go to the Chinese first … Period .. They will move it over to the 6 and open a new IMAX film … This is a brilliant move ..
There clearance issues will be over …. Smart move ..
Yes it is the draw that can save the theatre !
94 foot screen is amazing … I owned a 78 foot screen theatre by 42 …amazing!!
Roger what wrong with trying to make money .. This is the mentality of America today !
Bravo , sounds like a plan that might actually save this theatre.

20th November 2012
Starting December 27th the Plaza Theatre will be operating under new ownership. Michael Furlinger has had his eye on the Plaza for many years in the hopes of one day owning and operating it. Having spoken with him a few times over the last 6 years we have decided it will be best for the Plaza’s survival to pass the torch to him. He has 30 years experience in the cinema business and has worked as an owner/operator as well as a film booker. He took his last theatre, the Terrace Theatre in Charleston, South Carolina from a struggling enterprise to a huge success with deep ties to the community. Furlinger’s plan for the Plaza Theatre is to use his expertise in film booking and close relationships with the studios to strengthen the feature programming while continuing the current popular special events such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Silver Scream Spookshow, Splatter Cinema, Taboo La-La, The Room, and Wonderroot’s Local Film Night. The Plaza Theatre will also remain home to the revered Atlanta Film Festival, continuing their programming and workshops throughout the year. Furlinger has big plans for substantial renovations including new state of the art DCP digital projectors, brand new seats, and gourmet concessions. 35mm film is quickly being phased out and very soon the only way to show a movie in the theatre will be DCP so we are excited he is willing to make these investments to help the Plaza Theatre secure a place in the future of Atlanta.
As far as the Plaza Theatre Foundation is concerned, we are currently working with the Atlanta FIlm Festival and Michael about how that will still be able to contribute, but for now your memberships and passes will continue to be honored under the new ownership. Those of you who purchased stars for our Star Wall, I will be taking those stars and mounting them to plaques to give to each of you. The few of you who made donations to our buy a seat campaign, I can return your donation.
Thank you all so much for your support! It has been our honor to be a part of the Plaza’s history and we hope you feel the same way. We’ve accomplished what we originally set out to do which was to save the Plaza from becoming a drug store or something else and we couldn’t have done it with out you all. We wish Michael the best of luck and we hope you all will continue to be supporters of the Plaza. We can’t wait to see Atlanta’s oldest cinema not just survive, but thrive!
