Ben Hill Twin

The Ben Hill Twin was opened November 25, 1969. This Eastern Federal Corporation property, was like two Cobb Cinemas next to each other. Drew pretty good crowds in the day since it was out by itself, west of Greenbriar/Westgate and several miles north of Old National. With a limited number of screens in the southwest part of Atlanta there was plenty of product to go around. Last time I was in the area I couldn’t locate it anymore so it has changed so much that you can’t recognize it anymore. The Ben Hill Twin was closed in 1987.

The first time I went to this theater was to a private screening of Airport 1975 at midweek matinee. The theater was not grand but not a bad place to see a movie. It seems at that time the rear of the building was a smoking section.

From time to time I would see movies here. The last was the opus “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” My how the mighty have fallen.

From what I remember, this theater closed about the same time Westgate closed.

Like I said it was not a palace but not a bad place to see movies.

This theater has not been demolished. It is presently used as a mosque.

No I never took pictures of the Stonemont. I only went there once. I do remember it was called Bollywood before it was demolished.
