Here are some great photos and information on the Lee/Grace Street Theatre.
I got a few shots of the 7-10 before they were boarded up and would love to see photos of the 1-9 theatres. I think AMC still hold the lease and will open a new complex in the mall if and when the renovation gets underway.
My finite memory of this theatre was that it was nothing really remarkable, just a standard mall multiplex cinema.
A fantastic work of architecture. Very well persevered and maintained. A definite must see.

A couple of 2009 photos of the exterior of the 72nd Street:
The theatre was demolished sometime during the mid to late 1980s.
Does anybody know the name of the architect or firm which designed the original Parkaire Mall?
There is hope for this art deco delight. First is that it has a great staff looking after it and second is that much of the original interior is still somewhat intact and salvageable. Take a peak at these photos from June 2010: 1, 2, 3, 4

This is a real showpiece. Although the auditorium has been carved into four mini cinemas, it apparently has not inflicted much damage to the original design and could be restored to its former glory.
Here is a 2009 photo of the former Fox Theatre.
This is a nice, quirky little venue which grows on you. The place is clean, the staff is courteous, the presentation in each of the auditoria is superb and the patrons are pleasant and quiet. 2009 and 2010 shots of the Shirlington: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Neat theatre! The exterior still retains its original charm although the interior appears to have been gutted and refitted with two small auditoria with back to back screens. The screens in each are probably only a bit smaller than the one used when it was a single screen venue and each auditorium is equipped with stadium style seating.
Great news! Plans are underway to restore the Roxy to its former glory: East Nashvilleâ€™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,

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.
