Buckhead Backlot, now named Buckhead Fork and Screen, is a great theater to watch a movie. Not only do you get to sit in comfortable lounge chairs, but waiters bring you food, from hamburgers and alcohol to popcorn in a bowl. If you don't have time for dinner and a movie, you can do both at the same time here. And even if you aren't hungry, the comfortable lounge chairs make for a better experience than stiff standard movie theater seats where someone tall in front of you may block part of your view.
It's gotta be tough to run a movie theater in this economy. So I applaud Georgia Lafont for giving this venue a try after so many others have failed in this location. But if anyone remembers George's Garden Hills theater, they'll remember how dirty it was. Well he's Sandy Springs location is not far behind. Please George up your game! Clean the carpet, repaint, and how about putting tablecloth on the tables. I will say it's nice to be able to have wine served but do wish it was not so bloody expensive.
This place has really turned around! Yes, it used to be gross and have smelly carpet. But they have revamped it and expanded their menu/bar selection. It isn't getting a 5 star review because of the poor service the wait staff offers. It's a nice system (push a button and someone is paged to your table), but doesn't work in practice and I don't know why. I ended up waiting 20 minutes to order a hot chocolate mid movie. Get your drinks before hand!
