Opened as a single screen theatre on June 30, 1965 with Peter O'Toole in “Lord Jim”. Sort of the twin or younger sibling of the Emory Theatre in they were both part of the Storey circuit, kinda resemble one another and generally booked what I call “Miramax caliber” films (Woody Allen’s “Manhattan” showed exclusively at the North Dekalb Theatre when it opened in Atlanta). On May 12, 1976, the North Dekalb Theatre was sliced down the middle during those crazy twining days in the 1970’s.
The theatre was closed in 1985 and was demolished almost immediately. A Cineplex Odeon four-plex opened where it fell. Alas, this quad would suffer the same fate as its predecessor, being leveled in less than five years after opening.
The AMC North DeKalb Mall 16 now operates from this address.
