The Beltline was located inside Beltline Mall (know known as Decatur Mall), on the northern end near what is now Penney’s Outlet. The mall decided they no longer wanted a theatre in the mall and did not renew the lease. Ironically, the current mall owners recently announced that Carmike will convert a former store into a movie theatre this year, and are not renewing the lease of the current free-standing Regal Theatre just outside the mall, not far from the old Beltline cinema location. (We’ll see how long that lasts).

Scratch the previous post, the Gateway was still a twin in 1988, it didn’t expand to 4 screens until March 30, 1990.-CB
