Listings started as Conyers 4 started to appear in the Septum cinemas listing on June 17th, 1983. 8 screens in 1985.

I think that this location was built by the Septum chain in 1983. At that time they were starting to build their own locations instead of picking up old Jerry Lewis locations. I think that the Memorial Drive 4 was their first build followed by this one then Holcomb Woods 6 then Memorial Drive 6. At some point during that time they also built a quad in Griffin.

Atlanta, like so many cities under went an over screening process during the Eighties which every chain would build something better and kill the cinema down the road,I knew a Theatre Manager that called them “DEATHSTARS”.

Opened officially as Conyers Cinema 4 summer 1983. Pretty state-of-the-art compared to Salem Gate Twin down the highway. Played first run fare and had Dolby in the large theatres. Later expanded to five screens a year later, then eventually eight summer 1985. Did door-busting business up until the Carmike Crossroads 16 finally opened in 2001 and Conyers got with the times. Nice theatre for the time period as poor Salem Gate tried to compete but eventually went the dollar house route before closing.

This may have been a Cineplex Odeon property that was taken over by Carmike. Seems like Plitt was done before this opened.
