Southlake Cinema 8

Opened on April 12, 1985. The Southlake Cinema 8 is the clone of the Shannon 8 in Union City, Georgia. Both were opened around the same time by Georgia Theatre Company and both were later acquired by the now defunct United Artist Theatres. Nothing really remarkable about either theatre save for the fact they were considered state of the art during their early years of operation. It was closed on July 27, 2000 and was demolished by April 2023.

I worked here in 1988 and was getting all my friends a job! Great place then. Like stated it was GTC owned in the beginning. When United Artist took over, they installed a self service concession stand. There were two sides to like two Ls. I worked in the back of it popping corn, putting out nachos and cheese along with hotdogs. The candy was under the register beneath the attendant. We had so much fun working there!! At the time, the manager was caught taking money and given the boot. Won’t say his name, but still remember it. We all did crazy things there from sexual escapades to eating the concession items. Good times indeed!

I drove by yesterday and just like Shannon 8, it has been demolished. Very sad.
