Delk Road 10

Viewing: Photo | Street View

When Storey opened the Delk in 1992, it was the largest and most luxurious theatre in Cobb County. The Delk was also among the first multiplexes in the metro Atlanta area with atmospheric auditoriums. Teardrop curtains adorned all but the 70mm equipped auditorium, which featured side to centre curtains in order to accommodate the larger screen.

It was closed in 2005

Very good points,MariettaFilmfanatic. I am not from Atlanta,but always heard Cobb County was one of the better counties in metro Atlanta.What happened to the Delk 10 is commom place in an industry that puts money way above giving moviegoers a good show, You could have a staff,Find it hard to believe the whole staff did not show up,more likely the theatre chain told the manager,the poor manager to all those tasks.I saw it coming when I was At GCC.My last year there they were talking about the managers cutting off the projectors after our highly trained UNION projectionists would start the last show.I was dead set against that and luckly that never happened in Augusta.Good parts of Town become rotten,Case in point,South Augusta.GCC puts a triple in the mall and because of high crime rate in that section of town people with money quit going to Regency Mall.GCC built a 8-plex outside the mall,It might have stayed open 10-15 years.I am amazed that today even in the good parts of Augusta area theatres have to pay cops to keep order.I my day I Threw them out,never heard of hiring cops.Glad i got out in 1983.

Nice find Mike. I don’t remember the year/month, but we once had a small write-up about Riverside Cinemas appear in BoxOffice Magazine. It was about a hot air balloon that got caught on one of the light poles in the parking lot.

No, it was not a promotion. The balloon was from the local Cherry Blossom Festival. I believe it had gotten off course and was attempting to land in our parking lot out of necessity. I was not working the day it happened, but I did see the pictures. The manager decided to submit the incident to BoxOffice, and they printed it. I did a quick search at the BoxOffice web site, but I was unable to find it.

I do not know Stan, but I have corresponded with him some here on CT. He seems to have visited a wide range of theatres in Georgia over the years.
