I was an early ‘90s employee, and can verify there was a group that worked there for years. I was there from 10th grade until I left for college ('92-'94), and then one more summer after my freshman year at UGA. There were people there long before me who lasted for years after I left.

To correct some stuff from up above: AMC Northlake opened in 1984. The first movies I saw there (at 8 years old) were “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “Dune.” And Northlake 2 hung on until 1992. I specifically remember seeing some ‘92 releases over there (“Lethal Weapon 3” pops to mind).

I think AMC Northlake closed around ‘99. I know that’s when the Regal Hollywood 24 opened its doors, and the competition was obviously crushing.

Slight correction: AMC Northlake opened in 1984. I specifically remember seeing “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Neverending Story” there.

The Movie Tavern, a cinema-eatery, now calls DeKalb County home.

The new business opened May 15 in the old AMC 8 cinema on Northlake Festival shopping center in Tucker.

The Movie Tavern, which shows first-run movies, has eight auditoriums and a full menu and wait staff that takes patrons' orders for everything from pizza to hot sandwiches, which is then delivered to the patrons in the auditorium.

The Dallas, Texas-based chain, which started in 2001, has more than 102 locations across the country. The Tucker location is one of 15 the chain will open in 2008.

It offers a full menu of chef-prepared classic American favorites including hand-tossed pizzas, burgers and sandwiches. It also serves beer, wine and margaritas from its lobby bar.

The conversion of the Northlake 8 into the Movie Tavern was designed by the Dallas architectural firm Partners in Architecture.
