The Hilan Theatre was opened October 9, 1933 with Slim Summerville in “Her First Mate”. During a recent excursion to Atlanta to get information and photos of the area’s theatres I was a bit disheartened to discover that the Hilan’s distinctive marquee as well as its entire North Highland Avenue facade had vanished. According to folks in the area, this former Storey Theatre is still there but none could account for its current condition or future.
A few years after the theatre closed in 1969, it became the home of the Metropolitan Community Church. Currently a bank, ice cream parlor and coffee shop reside in the space once occupied by the Hilan’s entrance and lobby.
