JackCoursey commented about Cobb Cinema on Dec 28, 2009 at 7:53 pm

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 5, 2009 at 7:58 pm

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.

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.

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.

So this is the former RebYank! Was the original auditorium split into four sections or were the other auditoriums added on? 2009 photos of the Manassas Cinema: 1, 2

JackCoursey commented about Tremont Temple on Oct 25, 2009 at 5:55 pm

Unfortunately the balance of the photos I made of the interior didn’t turn out as well due very little lighting in the sanctuary/auditorium. The rear of the sanctuary continues with the theatre motif (note the projection booth in the top balcony and theatre seating rather than pews) whereas the pulpit is about the only area distinctively,…..churchy.

What is the verdict on this building; was it ever a theatre or has it always been a church? Both the exterior and interior strongly suggest that it was initially intended to be a theatre. Here are a few shots from 2009: 1, 2

JackCoursey commented about Buckhead Theatre on Sep 5, 2009 at 8:09 am

The Roxy/Buckhead Theatre has closed and it’s fate is uncertain. Since LiveNation/Clear Channel terminated their lease of the theatre in February 2008, bookings for the venue have been few and sporadic. The Buckhead area is currently in limbo with plans to make it into the “Rodeo Drive of the South” on hold. The jewel box Garden Hills Theatre located just down the street shuttered in 2007 and remains vacant.

Absolutely nothing remains of the Foundry Cinemas. Retail space in this very high end community does not sit vacant for long.
