    Movies are good, but you have to walk up stairs to get to one theater. The heating fans are loud and distract from the movie.

    Get front row seats or corner ones ... The floor is not sloping n is almost flat so the person in front will surely block ur view of the screen ! But the theatre gives u an old school feel :)

    Very nice spot. Very ideal for premiering indie films.

    Beautiful theater. Deeply rooted in A Town history. AND the popcorn is salty and buttery throughout! ;)

    Great place for Indie and Cult films. They still do Rocky Horror!

    I love when Plaza shows classics! I've watched 'Meet Me in St. Louis' a bazillion times, but seeing it on the big screen last night was like seeing it for the first time...nothing like it...

    Come to filmfest!!!

    Everyone should definitely come and see the Rocky Horror Picture Show every friday night because Lips Down On Dixie is an amazing cast full of amazing people!!!

    New ownership drastically changing this once great historic landmark. Business model is strictly corporate; no more arcade, no Spookshow, art deco charm all gone. Not to mention the longtime staff.

    Cane sugar bottled sodas FTW

    They don't make 'em like this anymore. A great blast from the past for nerds of many stripes - come early for the cartoons. And bring quarters for the retro arcade.

    Bring cash. The phone lines were down and the ATM ran out of money. But everything else rocks.

    The Plaza Theatre shopping center was the first "mall" in Atlanta to have off-street parking.

    The Plaza Theatre is Atlanta's oldest continuously operating cinema; it opened in 1939 as an art deco theatre and then was an X-rated adult cinema & live burlesque show in the '70s (until 1983).

    LDOD is performing a Friday AND Saturday night showing of Rocky Horror this Halloween. Remember when you check on foursquare you get a free raffle ticket.

    Saw Evangelion 2.22 here and Trigun: Badlands Rumble here. This theatre is so cool. Definitely worth the 45 minute drive.

    Spend some time checking out all of the wonderful old movie posters that adorn the walls inside the main entrance. Also, be sure to check out the great collection of old school arcade games.

    Actually, no, you CAN'T buy tickets early for Rocky Horror unless it's Halloween weekend. That's also the only weekend it sells out. Just get here by 11 any Friday night. you should have no problem.

    Hippest theater in the city. They get a lot of stuff after Tara and MAC, but a lot of exclusives and the cult movie events are amazing!

    One of Atlanta's few truly historic landmarks. You MUST go see the weekly Rocky Horror Shows where you can physically do the Time Warp with men in corsets and stilettos ...simply fun & amazing!
