I would like to take this opportunity to clear up a few points regarding the Peachtree Art Theatre which was operated by my father from 1946 until 1971. The theatre was located at 1137 Peachtree Street in Atlanta. It had a full concession area which featured imported candies and popcorn that was specially grown by the Word Popcorn Company in Scottsboro, Alabama.
The theatre was highly successful and overflow crowds were commonplace throughout it’s existence. Many notable Atlantans were regular patrons including Bobby Jones, the famed golfer, and Margaret Mitchell the author of Gone With The Wind. The theatre closed in 1971 due to the redevelopment of the property.
I hope that this clears up some misconceptions that seem to exist.
