Cliff Carson commented about Twelve Oaks Theatre on Jul 10, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Makes me sick how all the theaters I loved in Atlanta are GONE or changed drastically to the point they barely resemble the place they use to be. Doraville Mini Cinema GONE. Loew’s Tara GONE (the single screen) Briarcliff Village Theater GONE. Loew’s Grand GONE. Roxy Theater GONE. Toco Hills theater GONE. N.E. Expressway Drive-In and North 85 Drive-In theaters GONE. Original North Dekalb theatre GONE. I could go on and on, but you get the point.

It’s really too bad about theaters like this in downtown Atlanta. By the mid to late 70’s the city was getting a reputation of being a dangerous place to visit and people who generally drove to see “event” films stopped going. Big films opened in wider release and in more theaters. The days of the roadshow picture were over.

Does anyone know what movies played there in the 60’s?

Cliff Carson commented about Happy 45th, "The Sound Of Music" on Jan 4, 2013 at 8:15 pm

The Sound of Music was a grand film, but the roadshow attraction I remember being the most elaborate and special was OLIVER! at the newly built and plush LOEW’S TARA theatre in Atlanta. It was a single screen theatre in those days, beautifully lit with twinkling lights running up and down the columns of the building. OLIVER! was spared no expensive. Elaborate window designs, special marquee highlighting it’s showing, it was a real EVENT.

This isn’t the Tara theatre. It’s the Twelve Oaks

When I was a little kid my dentists office was in the building directly across the street. His window looked down at this theatre and I remember the colorful marquee for THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE

That is AWESOME, thanks for posting. GREAT article. Too bad the theatre isn’t like that anymore. Well, at least it’s still open, chopped up though it may be. Back in 1969 seeing a 70mm film at the Loew’s Tara was a real event.

Cliff Carson commented about Dolby Theatre on Jun 25, 2012 at 6:29 pm

This theatre is CRAP. Seriously. It was designed for television viewership, not for an audience. The first row balcony is a joke. So far from the stage, participants on stage looking like ants. It will remind you of all the reasons why never to sit in a balcony. The lobby small, unattractive with little or no light streaming in from the outside. Truly a claustrophobic experience unless you’re seated downstairs near the stage.

Love this picture. I was in this beautiful theatre before Atlanta was stupid enough to tear it down. The Roxy was gorgeous.

This was after the remodeling. Originally the aisle was on the left and right with the seats in the middle.
