Opened June 10, 1938 with Clark Gable in “Test Pilot”, the Rhodes Theatre was the Atlanta flagship of the Storey Theatres Inc. chain. A beautiful and luxurious showplace, the Rhodes Theatre became the only place in town to see the latest release from either Bergman or Fellini. It also seasoned its fare with an occasional classic like “Coconuts” or “Citizen Kane”.
When Storey Theatres Inc. didn’t renew its lease, attempts were made to preserve the theatre, but all to no avail. The theatre was gutted and it’s exterior was mangled beyond repair by a developer who fell short on cash and left the property in ruins.
