Northeast Plaza Cinema

Built by the O'Neil Theatre Company in a space formerly occupied by retail stores in what was then known as Loehmann’s Plaza, this venue was solely a second run operation from its inception when it opened October 12, 1990. The Northeast Plaza was a fairly decent place to catch flick after it had ran its course at either the Lenox or the Phipps. It was closed in 1999.

It’s now a Hispanic nightclub, I believe.

Loehmann’s Plaza is on the other side of I-85 on N. Druid Hills Road where it meets Briarcliff. Northeast Plaza was an old strip center rehabbed around 1998 and the theatre was part of the effort, along with the Publix market. The center opened with mainstream stores and gradually became a mix of ethnic/Latino and low end stores like thrift shops and pay day loan places.

I have been into this place as the Atlanta Peach Ballroom, and It still looks like a movie theater. The club has several different floors with different music. My guess is the theater sound helps the club. My favorite part of the club is that the bathrooms are in the front of the club just like a theater.

We used to call it the “Cohoes” Theater, after that chain of discount department stores, because it was the anchor at Northeast Plaza for a few years. The theater itself was nice and an easy place to catch a film for half price. Northeast Plaza has undergone so many changes. Originally it was a small, suburban strip mall with a Kroger and another grocery as anchors, a wig shop, drug store and a bowling alley. I thought the other food store was Colonial, but recently found out that my memory had failed me, so it may have been an A&P or a Winn Dixie.

Saw many movies here after a trip to the local Paper Chase where I bought movie posters. The strip mall was kind of crappy, but the theater was ok.
