Built in place of a defunct department store and utilized some space from a previous 4 screen location. I seem to recall the 4 screen (Plitt I think) replaced and older property that was a Storey property. I once saw it referred to as “forest green” theatre in an article about AMC’s expansion to this location.

All theaters on the same site?

1st Theater, North Dekalb, 1966-1985, Storey Theaters, twined in the early 1980’s became the North Dekalb Twin?

2nd Theater, Cineplex Odeon Market Square 4, 1990-1995 a “jewel box” theater?

Present Theater, 1996, AMC?

Anyone have more info or photos?

Wow! Raymond Stewart returns!!! Good to see your comments after such a long absence. If you have not been keeping up then you should check out the Miracle and Belvedere pages.

As for this theatre, it is kind of in a gray area as to if it already has a page on this site. The original North DeKalb does:

/theaters/11659/

There are many interesting comments there. That theatre was built as a single, twinned in 1975, and torn down with a good part of the mall in the late 80’s. What was not torn down was gutted and an entirely new mall built and opened under the name of Market Square. The Cineplex 4 was known as Market Square and was in a different spot from the original Storey theatre.

I do not know the rest of the story. The 4 might have been expanded to 8 or just split. As to the AMC 16 I do not know if it includes any of the 4 or 8 or maybe it is an entirely new construction.

To answer Bob’s question, yes they were all built in the mall, but nothing sits on the site of the original theatre which was really just attached to the mall and had its own outside entrance.

Anyone interested in theatres in what is now North DeKalb Mall should look at the other page I linked to above.

I CAN’T stand AMC. Why wasn’t I snapping pictures of the original NORTH DEKALB MALL theatre when it was a single theatre and the entry way was from outside. That was a beautiful theatre. Saw many wonderful movies there starting with OLIVER! and then WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.

Who was it that said, “growing up in Atlanta is like watching your past hauled away in a dump truck”??

No appreciation for nostalgia.

Americans bitch and complain about job loss and the economy, but they did it to themselves by funding and pouring their money into corporations rather than privately owned sectors. Horrible stores like WALMART and Costco.
