Anyone have the experience of seeing the Burt Bacharach musical LOST HORIZON at the National?

Looks like a really romantic Drive In Theatre. A sad shame the community allowed it to die

Cliff Carson commented about TORONTO STAR AD "DARLING LILI" - EGLINTON THEATRE on May 17, 2015 at 3:01 pm

This well made movie got held back from release to distance itself from the box office failure of STAR! It was thrown into multiples with little fanfare and sadly bombed.

treadway, you are right. Both theaters (the one downstairs was single screen when it opened and the Penthouse upstairs) were plush and made the film you were seeing a memorable experience.

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.

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.
