We have it on good authority that the Plaza Theatre could be closing within the next week or so. I don’t know if it’s for sale or any further details, but it wouldn’t hurt to go see something there this week in case it’s your last chance for a while or ever.
I guess if we were real journalists we would call the owners to verify the facts and get a quote, but hearsay from someone’s old roommate with very close ties to the Plaza is good enough for this blog.
The Plaza is one of few remaining examples of late 1930s streamlined moderne design and the last theatre of its kind in Atlanta.
In other theatre news, Midtown Art Cinema allowed its wine and beer license to lapse, so for the time being you’ll have to go dry when you find out the hard way that Juno and The Orphanage aren’t as great as you were led to believe.
