The Georgia Theatre Company’s Greenbriar Mall Theatre was heralded as the showplace of the south when it opened on October 15, 1965 with John Wayne in “The Sons of Katie Elder”. Seating was provided for 1,040, with 760 in the orchestra and 280 in the loge (smoking section). It retained it ‘showplace of the south’ status at least in the south Atlanta area until it was twinned around 1975. The auditorium was split down the middle with what must have been a thin sheet of drywall covered by drapes. This resulted in a large theatre with two tiny screens with a horrible sound system that permeated the thin wall between the two auditoriums. It was closed in 1996.
Loews later built a Magic Johnson theatre on the mall site that J. C. Penny once occupied. Does anyone know the current status of the original theatre?
