I’m confused as to who has told people that this and the Parkwood opened in the early 90s. Again, I don’t know when it opened but it was in operation in the 70s and 80s. I saw many a movie there when I was a kid. I saw Ghostbusters there.

I thought that this was a Septum built theatre. Septum was an Atlanta based chain that started out picking up former Jerry Lewis locations and then began building their own new construction starting in about 1982. I know they had a quad on Highway 41 in Griffin and do not see any other 4 screen locations listed for Griffin. The map location, if it is correct is about where it was located. I saw “Sudden Impact” here in, I think, Christmas of ‘84, or whenever it was released.

That would be Christmas ‘83. Also, there was a Hardee’s in the front parking lot if that helps clear anything up.

It was at various points a Septum, Carmike and Cineplex Odeon theater. I think that might be the order in which the companies were bought by one another, right? I’m pretty sure that even though it went through different names we always called it the Septum. Because that sounded closest to septic tank. And in later years the theaters smelled. We weren’t very original with our insults.

The Hardees is actually still there. As is the Taco Bell although at the time I think it was still a Del Taco. And it’s certainly been rebuilt since then but it’s in the same spot. The entire shopping center is basically the same but the only stores still around from back in the 80s, when it was prime “hang out on a Friday night” real estate, are the Belk and the Radio Shack. Everything else is long replaced. This theater is now a low end clothing store.
