Westgate was the first theater outside of downtown. I remember going to the Weatgate in the early 60’s.

I’ve updated the street view(hopefully) to show the actual building. It is now a furniture store. On the backside of the building which is facing Eisenhower Parkway, the exit staircase from one of the auditoriums is still there.

The Cinemas 3 which is also shown in that ad was the former Riverside Twin which was built in the early 70’s by the Weis company and operated under the name Weis Cinema. Weis later sold all of its Macon presence to Georgia Theater Company which twinned each side of the Riverside. Obviously, this ad was from a time when only one side had been split.

I forgot to note that the Westgate was owned and operated by the Georgia Theatre Company from the time I first found it until the late 80’s when it was included in the Georgia Theatre Company sellout to United Artists Theatres.

I do not know who was responsible for building it in the first place. I am sure that it was closed by United Artists before the sellout to Regal.
