Great news! Plans are underway to restore the Roxy to its former glory: East Nashville’s Roxy reborn from the March 9, 2010 edition of the Tennessean.

The Carver was located at 1295 Jonesboro Rd SE (not too far from the world famous Harold’s Bar-B-Que) and the Forrest (that is the correct spelling) was situated at 245 Forrest Ave NE.

Quite right! It will be 42 come this May. The Tara still holds the distinction of being the only theatre in the Atlanta area with more than forty years of continuous operation.

The Tara is still Terrific! It has been over twenty five years since I last cast a shadow in its lobby so it was a total sensory experience when I recently returned. The theatre is a classic and far larger than I remembered. The ridge across the ceiling of cinema one and four suggest that the theatre originally had a giant curved screen similar to the Georgia Cinerama. The place looks great for 48 years of continuous operation, a record for an Atlanta theatre. Feast your orbs: 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6

Are you referring to the Queens Chapel Drive-In in Hyattsville? This venue was demolished in the late 1980s and is now part of the Hyattsville Metro Station.

The Westhampton is definitely among an elite group of cinemas which merit making a two hour drive to see a film there. Exterior shots from 2010: 1, 2, 3

Check the Crown Aspen Hill Theatres. This twin turned quad is now a drug store.

This cinema is up and running again as the Montgomery Royal Theatre (MRT). The short lived cinema and drafthouse concept has been abandoned and conventional theatre seating has been restored to each of the six auditoria (no word as to what the other four auditoria will be used for. The MRT is an independent operation showing first run films a few bucks less than the major chains.

The theatre exterior is vintage 1970s architecture and quite impressive. Although I didn’t have a chance to get any interior shots, I did manage to get a couple of the exterior: 1, 2

OMG when I recently pulled up the satellite map for the address of the Cobb it appears that this architectural gem has been demolished! If anyone knows the status of this shrine of cinematography please update! Would love to see the interior of the Cobb if anyone has any photos they would be willing to share.

JackCoursey commented about Doraville Cinema 'N' Drafthouse on Dec 6, 2009 at 3:58 am

How was the auditorium configured on this theatre; was it parallel with the lobby (similar to the Lefont Screening Room) or conventional (e.g. Cobb Cinema)? The site of cinema wasn’t much larger than the dining area of a Waffle House.

JackCoursey commented about Allen Theater on Dec 5, 2009 at 5:47 pm

A real shame! Although the interior had been gutted, there were still in place some very distinctive vestiges of its previous incarnation as a cinema showplace. Had this been a viable community, it might have been a great spot for Landmark to construct a multiplex art house in its shell. Although the property looked tired and haggard last time I saw it, it still had that rare architectural distinction one so rarely encounters.

JackCoursey commented about Regal Downtown West Cinema 8 on Nov 26, 2009 at 11:44 pm

A delightful boutique cinema! The venue staff is very affable, professional and diligent in keeping the place immaculate, inviting and comfortable. The original four auditoria are period pieces from the 1970s featuring large, wide screens. All of the auditoria feature excellent audio and video capabilities. Here andhere are 2009 photos of the Downtown West.
