Does anyone know what movies played there in the 60’s?
WOW! Now THAT’S a theatre
It’s disgusting. I hate man
Wow, this is sad
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
I love this picture
Love it. Wonderful fun movie
THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT. I remember that summer of 77'. What a film that was.
When this theatre was new, there was nothing like it. Plush, big, clean and beautiful.
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.
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.
I saw many films here, THE WAY WE WERE. EARTHQUAKE, DRUM
A great theatre for a big film like OLIVER!
Love this picture. I was in this beautiful theatre before Atlanta was stupid enough to tear it down. The Roxy was gorgeous.
This is amazing. Thanks for posting
I love this
This was after the remodeling. Originally the aisle was on the left and right with the seats in the middle.
This was one of the more exciting and exclusive theaters in Atlanta. Big films would play here and often be held over for months and months. It was an “event” theater and the marquee was always lit up and exciting to drive by. Whatever film was booked you know it was important. The musical HALF A SIXPENCE played there for quite a while.
