Southlake Festival Cinema 6

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Southlake Festival was without question the most elegant cinema in the southeast metropolitan Atlanta area. The theatre was basically the same design as other Cineplex Odeon six screeners such as the Town Centre in Marietta, GA and the Fridays Plaza in Doraville, GA.

I was the manager of this location for a good while during the mid to late 90’s. I loved working there and I still look back on the time I spent there as the best experience I have ever had at a job. Not because of the super-cheap Carmike Cinemas that bought the place out after Cineplex Odeon sold, mind you, but because of the people I met there and the fun times we shared. I really miss that old building as well as that time in my life. It really was a very nice location with marble floors, velvet curtains over the screens, etc. It’s too bad that the AMC 24 came along, but it was just a sign of the times.

This was a nice theater. I was impressed with the art-deco interior. This place tried to make a go as a dollar house after Southlake 24 opened. Unfortunately it did not work. Anything was better than the GCC Southlake III up the street.

This theater actually stayed open for while after AMC Southlake 24 opened. It quickly changed to a dollar house but then closed not long after that.
