Promenade Theatre

The Promenade Theatre was opened December 14, 1979. It was among the last theatres to open under the Plitt banner in the metro Atlanta area. The Promenade Theatre consisted of three identical auditoriums with relatively large screens, reddish orange decor and approximately equal seating capacity. Following a brief stint as second run venue during the late-1980’s the Promenade Theatre was closed in 1993, gutted and converted into an audio retailer.

More movies,but I think Robin was no longer managing these screens.

I never even pretended to manage here. My husband was the manager! By the time these movies came out Judy might have been managing. You remember, you met her at the reunion — Cathy’s friend???

I worked at the Promenade in the early ‘80s- I helped put up that Porkey’s sign. The building management made us take it down. Some of the best times of my life were at this theater.

Some of my best times too, I wonder what Jessica and Suzanne are doing now? I’d surely like to catch up…

Robin, Adam did not run the projectors. The people who ran the projectors were Mr. Mitcham, Dave, Mickey, Kris, and Doug (when he was not drooling over Laurie).
