It gives me no joy that I was correct on this closing in 2016. The Ziegfeld can be proud of its rich history and excellence .

So I was at the World Premiere of Star Wars last night and the presentation was flawless . Picture and sound were amazing . The seats are comfy but have and odd tilt when sitting . The rest of the theatre looked tired and not well maintained.

It is stuck in limbo with no operating company behind it … ( like a bow tie ) I know that they are looking for a way out of the lease .

I have been on this site since day one and never said before the days are numbered . I hope but would be shocked if it makes it to 2017.

From what I can tell now the theatre is on borrowed time . My guess 2016 is the end .

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
