The Peachtree Battle Minicinema opened on April 5, 1968 with “Elvira Madigan”. It was located in the northern quadrant of the Peachtree Battle Shopping Centre and operated by the Modular Cinemas of America. 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 Modular Cinemas of America moved out of the Atlanta market in May 1972 it was taken over by Weis Theatres. A young entrepreneur with a passion for classic cinema named George Lefont acquired the theatre and changed it’s name to the Silver Screen on October 21, 1976. 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.
