BTW, what was built on the former Loew’s site since this was such “prime property”? :–((

Hard to believe that THE theatre that premiered Gone with the Wind is now….‘gone’! :–((

McGee: “the desire for the property’s prime site led to it’s demolition”…interesting quote! And does anyone know the whereabouts of the former Loew’s Wurlitzer today?

I now have a copy of Popcorn Palaces and the former Loew’s Grand Theatre is in there! But so sad that it was demolished as I feel there was room in Atlanta for BOTH the Loew’s and the Fox!

McGee: Found it interesting to read that a resident of S.W. Atlanta HAD possession of the Wurlitzer! I wonder if Larry, organist in residence, at the Fox knows this fact? Also, where is the organ today?

I hope to locate a copy of Popcorn Palaces to see the Loew’s Grand Theatre. Thanks to those who have offered photos of this Atlanta theatre.

And here is another, closer one. Both from the Charles Cushman collection.

This facility was re-decorated in an Art Deco style when Loew’s took over operation. The theatre was reportedly heavily damaged by fire, although the fire was in an adjacent structure. Most likely, smoke damage and the desire for the property’s prime site led to it’s demolition. A resident of S.W. Atlanta had possession of the Wurlitzer (a Style E 2-manual / 7-rank instrument.)
