EVERYONE OF THE ABOVE POSTS concerns GEORGIA SQUARE MALL CINEMAS 1,2.3.4. . I never worked at the five plex outside. Craig Zacker was the first manager. He was the city manager there until he stood his ground when a district mgr. fired one of his friends working at GCC in Atlanta. Zacker said “To Hell with it,if that is the way this company is going to treat a decicated manager, I am out of here.” Craig Zacker walked out a man of his words and ran a horse camp in Athens until his untimely death.

It wasn’t too long GCC ,once a proud chain had gone BROKE.

Surprize of the evening my girlfriend and future wife pops in one evening unannounced.Just glad i was behaving myself with the girls at the theatre.I know she remembered REGENCY cause that is where we met.

I wish this site said GEORGIA SQUARE CINEMAS 1.2.3.4 instead of value cinemas it looses it historical value.

Friday night after the midnight shows Charles and I drive out to Mike’s {our relief Projectionist} for a Athens Party. IT was theatre folks and friends. And these theatre people DRINK just like my buddies with ABC THEATRES. Charles got so wasted i had to drag him out of the car and put him to bed. A first.

Saturday morning Charles had the mother of hangovers and could not work Saturday morning.We went in at 10am everyday with GCC. SO Zacker and myself had to get the place ready. Charles dogged in that evening. We all worked til 2am .

One thing i noticed quickly when i started working was there was NO ONE SHEETS from past movies.I asked some of staff and sure enough since the place had been open the posters hang in GEORGIA dorms,COLLEGE TOWN ! I had hoped to find a few gems.

I know several times kids asked me for one sheets ; I can count on my hand how many times i was asked for posters in Augusta.

WE had a 20 amp breaker go bad in one of the service panels.I told ZACK i could change a breaker and save the company a few bucks. He call a electrican from Athens.Total waste of money.

One thing about GEORGIA SQUARE is it is so much larger than REGENCY TRIPLE. We have a nice check out room. The stock room is twice the size as REGENCY and while the popcorn room at REGENCY seem to be in a closet the one here is nice enought,the employees have a desk to study since most all of them go to UGA.
At GEORGIA SQUARE we can keep all the drink cups in the stock room.At REGENCY we had to store some in the booth and that teed DRAY off alot. I think ZACK misses Chuck Dray.

Well, our Assistant manager Charles has found a Girlfriend that means this other Assistant,ME is having to mind the store more. At 4pm Mr.Zacker is gone. She is the mall somewhere, the other day the guy bought flowers,no wonder our power bill is not getting paid.
Mr.Zacker is showing Charles how to make up an ad and made it clear he did not want me to give advice.Zack does a pretty good ad.

I did go with ZACKER to AKERS MILL in Atlanta one time or.Lets say i drove him. He never liked to drive,but i did get to see the Atlanta theatres. I think he had a meeting there. WE later visited an AMC theatre. When word came that GCC was building five more screens in the parking lot i should have stayed.Charles was more than happy inside the mall.
That GCC jacket affects girls it seemed in Athens.

Mr.Zacker was always looking for future assistants. I was surprized Karen never wanted to move up,but she seemed happy in the box office.I think Pam {can’t remember her last name] showed some interest and i think she took the spot when i left.Why, did i leave i guess i just got home sick and living in a single wide trailer i wouldn’t wish on anyone.
