While strolling past the cinema today I noticed that some of the paper was off the windows reveling parts of the interior. It appears that one of the auditoriums was recently used for a private screening.
Thanks for the update! It’s a challenge getting definative information on these places.
Could that have been the Whitehaven at 1243 Laudeen Dr? It opened as a single screen in 1966, was twinned in 1973 and demolished in 1983.
The interior of the Uptown Theatre in Washington DC is, with the exception of the colour scheme and positioning of the left and right projectors, is almost identical to the Atlanta.
Without question the Paramount is one of the most beautiful theatres on this planet! Support it, visit it. It is a true gem. The following photos from August 2008 do not do justice to the Paramount, but a least give a taste of what it has to offer: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
According to Robert Headley, this theatre existed between 1918 and 1945, seated between 350 and 600, and was demolished before 1950.
The Indian Lake Cinema is no more having been replaced by the far superior Streets of Indian Lake right up the street. Here are exterior photos of the old cinema prior to its demise: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
The theatre has either been demolish or converted into a grocery store. As of March 2008 there is no indication that a theatre ever existed in this shopping plaza.

Dang! Letâ€™s try it again: 1, 2

Thanks. I havenâ€™t been able to locate a directory of the Eastern Federal theatres and was hoping that one would have come available at the time Regal took them over. Maybe someone could check with the main library in the Jackson Beach area.

Perfect! Thanks! I did not realize that the Grove was wide enough to support a full Cinemascope presentation.
You can upload them onto Flickr and include them in the Georgia Theatre Group.

Per Courtnerkin in Flickr “It was initially a single screen cinema called Cinema One. It was twinned by placing a sound wall down the center of the auditorium and downsizing the screens. I think this occurred about 1984. I’m pretty sure I saw Empire Strikes Back there prior to the twinning. After it was twinned, it was called Cinema Twin. In about 1994 under new management, it was renamed Cheri. Following another management change it became the Campus Twin before going under.”

Only what the current proprietor told me this past Saturday.
A great amount of money and effort has been lost by individuals who are attempting to restore and reopen the Parkway only to be stymied by the local government who would rather raze the theatre and use the land for other purposes. The current owner could really use some concerted help from the citizens of Baltimore in overcoming the bureaucratic roadblocks the city is putting up to prevent saving this magnificent piece of architecture.
