Holcomb Woods 6 Cinema

The Holcomb Woods was the best of the Atlanta based Septum Cinemas chain. The Septum circuit was made up of old Jerry Lewis and Mini Cinemas along with a few sheet metal and concrete monstrosities of its own. The Holcomb Woods was opened June 21, 1985 and was the best venue in the upper Roswell/Norcross area between 1989 and 1995. The last I heard on this theatre was that is was acquired by Carmike. It was closed in 2000 but briefly reopened on March 2, 2001.

One thing no one really mentioned so far was that this place had some arcade games in it. Not many, though. They probably had 7 or 8 machines lined up against that wall on the right side when you walk in. I also remember there were a couple machines at the end of the hall right outside the theaters on the back right.

I seemed to remember the popcorn at Holcomb Woods being terrific. Of all my theater options in Roswell/Alpharetta at that time, I think I actually preferred going to Holcomb Woods because of the good popcorn. Does anyone else remember the popcorn?

I think the former Rio Bravo space is now occupied by another restaurant – this one is called Londzell’s Martini Restaurant & Lounge. The former Holcomb Woods theater underneath is still a church, but I don’t think it is Hope Chapel anymore, it has some new name. I actually drove by it today, but I couldn’t read the whole name of the place because I was going too fast. It was something like “City Church” or something.

I think the above movie theater is opening in that little shopping center across from the Pike Nursery, next to TJ’s Sports Bar and Grill. I think I drove by the other day and saw some signage for it.

Yes, Cineplex bought out Septum a few years after this opened. Was in a horrible location, lower level backside of the shopping center along a very heavy traffic area. Operated by Carmike for a short time after they took over Cineplex’s assets in Atlanta.

For a time, this theatre was one of the best grossing theaters in the metro Atlanta area. But eventually North Point Mall opened in nearby Alpharetta bringing serious competition from both AMC and General Cinema.

Yes, EFW had a brief run here. Parts of their leadership seem to have touched just about every closed theater in the area at some point.
