AMC Classic Peachtree 8

The Peachtree Twin Cinema opened on June 5, 1975. It was converted into a triple screen on January 12, 1979. In 1993 it was taken over by Carmike and was closed to be expanded to 8-screens which opened on December 9, 1993. It was initially a first run house, but was delegated to a second run discount house in recent years. Operated by AMC since 2017 as a first-run theatre. It was closed on December 6, 2023.

Judging by Historic Aerials, the current 8-screen building (and the easern part of the mall) did not exist at the time of their 1993 photo. I would say that the current 8-screen building is entirely new and not any part of the original 2/3 screen configuration.

It’s not part of the mall its behind the mall. It closed in 95 to be redone as 8 screens. The 3 orginal theaters are still alarm of it. Go there alot

I understand that the theatre isn’t part of the mall. But the current building doesn’t appear on historic arial maps until 2004 images. Prior to that the space where the current building stands is an empty field. That’s why I suspect the 1975 building is not part of the current complex, and actually stood somewhat west of the current building.

I go there a lot orginal theaters are still apart of the building that’s what I like about it.

The theater is also no longer second run (but the admission prices are lower to the other theaters in town).

AMC is doing that to all the second run theatres they got from Carmike. Its too bad second run theatres are almost extinct.

The old Peachtree twin opened on June 5th, 1975 and a 3rd screen opening on January 12th, 1979 and closed in 1993. A new 8-plex opened in 1993.

Rebuilt and reopened on December 9th, 1993, as one of 16 all-THX certified multiplex in the world. Grand opening ad posted.
