Viewing: Photo | Street View

Movies at Gwinnett was originally a freestanding retail store in the perimeter of the Gwinnett Place Mall. The retail store closed within a couple of years of the mall’s opening and its lease acquired by the Georgia Theatre Company.

It was demolished in August 2009.

Started out life as a discount store in the Service Merchandise mold. Don’t remember the name but it was new to the Atlanta area and did not last long after its 1984 opening. Georgia Theatre Company took over the lease but sold out to United Artists Theatres in 1987 before doing anything with the property. UA converted the building to a 12plex and moved Richard Swank, the manager of the Lenox Square in as manager. Closed down in the late 90’s wave of theatre bankruptcies as was the old GTC and current UA Greens Corner just down the interstate. Reopened by the new Georgia Theatre Company but I was not aware that it had closed again. The design of the theatre was like two 6plexes shoved together with a box office and concession stand in between. Really not a bad place considering the fact that it was a conversion.

I was in it a good bit but the only movie I can recall seeing there was a 70MM presentation of Lawrence of Arabia.

Located across the mall parking lot from the old General Cinema Gwinnett Place 6 which opened in 1984 and closed in 2000.

The old Plitt Mall Corners 6 is located across Pleasant Hill Road from the mall entrance. Its life span matched that of the GCC 6.

The property owner said that they are currently in the process of demolishing the theater building to sell the cleared mall outparcel. So the theater no longer exists. Aug. 13, 2009

They should demolish the one across the street, too! It’s an eyesore!

I loved the popcorn at this theater when GTC ran it: salty, but tasty. Also, some of the auditoriums had that 70s look about them, which lent to a film’s atmosphere at times. Darn shame this one was demolished.
