Michael Furlinger, president of Atlanta’s Plaza Theater, may have been the last man standing. Early on Wednesday he pledged not to deviate from his scheduled Christmas Eve premiere. “I’d never stand for something like that,” he said. “As an independent we have more flexibility.” Ultimately, it wasn’t his decision. “I hate this,” he said after the final announcement. “This is blackmail.”

Atlanta’s Plaza Theatre planned to go ahead with its plan to screen “The Interview” until Sony decided to cancel the project altogether.

No one has a problem finding the theatre, it’s main problem is the shifting movie patterns in the city . I have worked there when we have done $60,000 a day

Credit: Moses Robinson / Getty Images Like many of the country’s earliest movie palaces, the Plaza Theatre has gone through a series of incarnations in the 75 years since it opened, from an Art Deco gem in the 1930s to a 1970s porn palace to a restored repertory theater in the 1990s. In 2012, The Plaza – Atlanta’s oldest continuously operating cinema – was purchased by a new owner, who has since reverted its programming back to a nice mix of new indie films, contemporary classics, and regular midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Why It Stands Out: In 2012, Michael Furlinger – who previously revamped Charleston’s Terrace Theatre – purchased the Plaza Theatre and has been dutifully working to upgrade the facilities (Including giving it plush chairs, gourmet concessions, and digital projection) while keeping popular community events intact.
