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 4:09 pm

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.

In 2009, the Washington Theatre Preservation Society is seeking to purchase the building and register it as a landmark. Owner Marco Matteo believes this step will allow the theater to prosper.

Nothing at this address (50 Dalton Street) resembles a cinema either in the interior or exterior. The building is currently leased to the Summer Shack, a restaurant and billiards hall which features a smashing Salmon burger.

GCC ran a quad on this site in 1983 know as the Naugatuck 1-4. It is a good chance this cinema started off as a twin or triple with one of the auditoriums later split to expand the number screens to four.
