And it’s open still as of today. And seeing as how I work there now and it’s my only job currently … I hope it stays open for awhile …

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.

Cool to see this open again. This was THE PLACE to see big hits in the mid-to-late ‘80’s. “Top Gun” in 70MM and “Indiana Jones Last Crusade” 70MM as well. I remember midnight show for “Total Recall” being packed, and they would have shows start as late as 1AM on weekends. Of course, I was in high school/early college at this time, haha.

I attended a brunch screening of “Deadpool” here last month in one of the single-aisle (and smaller) auditoriums. Whoever retrofitted the theater also made sure that you could see the entire screen should the move be in 2.35:1. When I attended this theater as an AMC from 1991-2002, I would avoid any single-aisle auditorium if I knew the film would be in scope. That is no longer the case (but I had to wonder why they moved “Deadpool” into a smaller auditorium on only its second week…)
