Opened in the late 1960s in the northern quadrant of the Peachtree Battle Shopping Centre by the Mini Cinema group, this little theatre featured a very narrow lobby with a concession stand that also served as the ticket booth. Despite its odd configuration, it was a very hip cinema.
When Mini Cinema moved out of the Atlanta market in the 1970s, a young entrepreneur with a passion for classic cinema named George Lefont acquired the theatre and changed it’s name to the Silver Screen. The theatre ran classic films such as “Key Largo”, “Singing In The Rain”, “Citizen Kane”, etc.on a double bill to sell out crowds. The Silver Screen was later demolished to allow for more retail space in the shopping centre.
