JackCoursey commented about Decatur Theatre on Jun 20, 2005 at 6:29 am

I agree, but I wanted to get confirmation. I came across a thread that seemed to imply that the Glen and Decatur were one of the same, but upon reviewing the photo of the Decatur, I figured that unless the Decatur went through some major renovations, it was not the Glen. Thanks for your help. How much of the Glen is still in tact and is/was there anything distinctive about it? All that I can recall is the giant neon lettering on the facade. I never patronized the Glen because by the time I discovered it, it had degenerated into a very sleazy porno shop.

Was this ever know as the Glenn or Glennwood?

JackCoursey commented about Stonemont Theatre on Jun 7, 2005 at 12:06 pm

I think the Ben Hill (est.1970 ?) was part of the Eastern Federal from the get go (they’re attempt to cash in on the Greenbrier Mall/Westgate market controlled by the Georgia Theatre chain.) I recall seeing Willy Wonka there during its initial run. Aside from the fact that both the Ben Hill and Stonemont began and ended their careers as twins, I don’t think there were any other similarities between the two.

JackCoursey commented about North Springs Theatre on Jun 7, 2005 at 11:52 am

Since the North Springs is still somewhat intact (based on a cursory view of the property last year) do you think it could be fitted for Cinerama?

Thanks Sam! The ABC theatres were my favourite circuit during my tenure in Marthasville. Didn’t they also build a triple down around Morrow before Plitt bought them out?

JackCoursey commented about Phipps Plaza Theater on Jun 5, 2005 at 7:11 pm

Are your photos posted anywhere on the web? It would be great to see the place again. What ever became of the Stone Mount? I can’t recall if it was an ABC or Plitt operation, but do remember that it wasn’t too bad of a venue.

JackCoursey commented about Marietta Star Cinema on Jun 3, 2005 at 9:13 pm

I can’t stir up too much emotion at the passing of the T & C. It wasn’t very distinctive and whatever redeeming qualities it had were lost when the main auditorium was twinned.

Next time you’re at the downtown library, check the old Cole and Polk directories from 1915 to date. In the early editions (circa 1900-1940) you’ll probably need to look under the heading of “Movie or Motion Picture Theatres. The later editions have all of the listings under Theatres.
Ms Marsh site is as inconspicuous as she was. Oakland is the Dunwoody for the dead.
