It is an empty parking lot now where the grass has taken over the pavement. All that remains of this place is the Sign near the road. It sits among a few bus stops. This was a nice theater because it was out of date but updated. No matter how big of a movie you could go there on a opening weekend and they would have plenty of tickets. They also a very good variety of candy like no other theater. The best part to this place however was the Star Wars Arcade game. It was only 25 cents to play and I imagine that I kept that place in business playing it. I hated to see it go. One day I drove past it and it was boarded up. I wrote the company a letter saying I hated to see it go an they replied very quickly stating that Georgia theater company made the decision to shut it down because of budget. Atlanta is a growing area and Gwinnett Place is making a come back. This would have made a perfect spot for a special showing theater. However to late for that. As many of you know sitting across the parking lot is Cinema 6…a very small theater that was shut down before this place. The only other theater in the area is a Dollar Theater Ventura Cinema 12…then off Pleasant Hill road which is a big “ To do ” strip about 5 or 6 miles down after all businesses have ended an way past the mall is a Regal Cinema. Thats it for this very populated strip.

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.

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

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

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.
