Atlanta Cinema

Oscar night got me in the mood for movies since I noticed that there were many that I had not yet seen. I think one of the reasons is that I’m just too lazy to go to the theater unless the movie’s playing at Landmark’s Midtown Art Cinema (I can walk there from home). It’s also a huge draw since it’s right next to The Highlander and Apres Diem, both which I highly recommend for pre-movie meals and post-movie drinks.

Midtown Art Cinema will also begin its new series of midnight movies with Wes Anderson’s Rushmore on March 4 & 5. If you haven’t seen this hilarious dark comedy, you’ve really got to go. $6. Midnight. 931 Monroe Drive, Midtown. 678-495-1424.

Speaking of theaters, the LeFont Plaza Theatre in Midtown is housed in a great art deco building with two screens, but they also have the most uncomfortable seats in the entire universe. I successfully injured myself and two others while seat-shifting during I ♥ Huckabees.

The AMC at Phipps is worth the drive to avoid that in the future. So, what other favorite theaters are out there?

    I like The Midtown Art Cinema, but it doesn’t have a student discount on the weekends and can run an almost NYC price of $8.50 a show (only “almost NYC” as actual NYC prices are $10.50).

    I like the AMC at Phipps too, saw Garden State there months and months ago, another favourite is the AMC at Cobb Galleria, but that was for location only

    Now my closest is a little local one in Cumming or the big Regal at Mall of Georgia

    The Midtown Art Cinema always has a great selection of pictures showing. Nice place.

    I also recommend The Independent, the bar directly above Apres Diem, I think, with the pool tables and such. Aussie-style steak fries and very reasonable prices on Strongbow and such. Nice folks.
