Holcomb Woods 6 Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Holcomb Woods was the best of the Atlanta based Septum cinema chain. The Septum circuit was made up of old Jerry Lewis and Mini Cinemas along with a few sheet metal and concrete monstrosities of its own. The Holcomb Woods was the best venue in the upper Roswell/Norcross area between 1989 and 1995. The last I heard on this theatre was that is was acquired by Carmike although it is no longer listed on their website.

I remember seeing a number of movies here as a kid:

Andre (1994)
The Man in the Iron Mask
Deep Impact
Face/Off
A Bug’s Life (1998)
South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (1999)
Screwed (2000)
Frequency (2000)

I remember that towards the end of its life (from approx. 1998 to 2002), the theater changed hands like 2 or 3 times, sometimes closing for months at a time. For a while, I thought the theater had beed closed for good, but nope, they would re-open like 2 months later.

The last time I can prove I went was to see “A.I.” in 2001, but I honestly think that was my last time at the Holcomb Woods. I seem to remember the last few times I went to the theater it was really depressing. I could tell that people were losing interest in the place and it wasn’t getting the same business that it used to. I think it finally closed for good sometime in 2001 or 2002. A couple years later, it became “Hope Chapel” (a church) and has remained so ever since.

The shopping center that it’s located in has suffered a lot over the last 10 years or so with the losses of both Wal-Mart and Rio Bravo. Has anyone been down there lately? I wonder what it’s like now.

Actually, I think I may have taken a girl there on a date in late 2001 (like October/November-ish), but again, that’s the last time I can remember going there.

Does anyone know if Hope Chapel took over both the theater AND the former Rio Bravo space? Since the theater closed, I have never been back to snoop around. Also, to the people who used to work at the theater, was Rio Bravo always there? If not, what used to sit on top of the theater before Rio Bravo?

One thing no one really mentioned so far was that this place had some arcade games in it. Not many, though. They probably had 7 or 8 machines lined up against that wall on the right side when you walk in. I also remember there were a couple machines at the end of the hall right outside the theaters on the back right.

I seemed to remember the popcorn at Holcomb Woods being terrific. Of all my theater options in Roswell/Alpharetta at that time, I think I actually preferred going to Holcomb Woods because of the good popcorn. Does anyone else remember the popcorn?

I think the former Rio Bravo space is now occupied by another restaurant – this one is called Londzell’s Martini Restaurant & Lounge. The former Holcomb Woods theater underneath is still a church, but I don’t think it is Hope Chapel anymore, it has some new name. I actually drove by it today, but I couldn’t read the whole name of the place because I was going too fast. It was something like “City Church” or something.

A CT article today states that a company named Studio Movie Grill is going to open an Atlanta location. The website has a picture. Doesn’t look much like the old Roswell Mall location, but it might be this place. Or, maybe it is new construction. The website states that the name will be Holcombe Bridge.

I think the above movie theater is opening in that little shopping center across from the Pike Nursery, next to TJ’s Sports Bar and Grill. I think I drove by the other day and saw some signage for it.

Yes, Cineplex bought out Septum a few years after this opened. Was in a horrible location, lower level backside of the shopping center along a very heavy traffic area. Operated by Carmike for a short time after they took over Cineplex’s assets in Atlanta.
