The Macon Mall Quad opened in 1978. Sometime in the 1980’s it was run by Regal Cinemas who subsequently tore the original building down and built an eight screen multiplex in the same spot.

The theater finaly closed its doors on October 11, 2001.

I wonder if it was a Georgia Theatre at one time,

I’ve updated the streetview to show the actual location. The theater itself is gone. The Linens~N~Things building is a new structure and is now abandoned as well.

As an aside the Macon Mall itself is now only a shell of its former self. Once the largest mall in the state it is now a place for the dregs to hang out. Most of the retail space is empty and the owner is preparing to demolish half the buidling (ironically the “new” half) and re-establish the remaining area as “Art Space.”

…or something like that.

from StanMalone:

It was built by Georgia Theatre in the mid 70’s and was included in the sell out to United Artists Theatres in the late 80’s before UA was bought by Regal.

The Macon Mall Quad opened on July 15, 1977. The debut bookings were “Star Wars,” “The Other Side of Midnight,” “Greased Lightning,” and “New York, New York.”

I worked here during High School in the late 80s. It was United Artists then. Popping corn while waiting on customers is a skill.

Went to the Macon Mall Theater in the late 70’s. What started out as the new mall in Macon unfortunately has gone downhill over the decades. They have tried to enlarge, that didn’t work, so they torn down the expansion. The area has deteriorated and major infusion and cultural change is vastly needed.
