An awesome retro art-house theatre

The Plaza Theater's art-deco style neon sign illuminates the night sky in the strip center on Ponce and Highland, calling attention to the short list of art films, second-runs, and participation movies. Known as much for its monthly Rocky Horror Picture Show viewings as it is for its awesome retro vibe - including its long arcade and tiny box theaters - the Plaza is what going to the movies is all about. Though it doesn't have the comforts and technologies of the modern day megaplexes, it greatly makes up for in charm and ambiance. It's seeing a movie the way your grandparents once did in the heart of a modern city. Its a wonderful retreat towards nostalgia that is a more than welcome break of Hollywood monotony.

One of a kind

The Plaza Theatre is about as good as it gets. The films they show are always unique, often not even found anywhere else in the city. The prices are good; the staff is friendly; the popcorn is delicious, and the atmosphere is so authentic. Also, they've just increased their arcade area, and now have a bunch of vintage arcade games. But what really makes The Plaza unique and worth at least a few trips to a month are the special events. Flicks and Giggles, Art Opening and a Movie, Rocky Horror, Splatter Cinemas, and the award-winning Silver Scream Spook Show. All of these give you a chance to really enjoy the whole experience of a film, especially films that you may never get to see in its original format anywhere else! Oh and one more thing- the last time I was there I noticed that The Plaza is now officially a non-profit. It looks like there are some fundraisers going on to raise money to replace the seats. So soon you won't even have to worry about the vintage rockers in the theater! (although I think I'll miss them.)

Go for Rocky Horror on Friday nights

It's an old theater that has real character. I read reviews on here with people complaining about lack of stadium seating and the sound quality. If you want stadium seating and Dolby Digital 9.1 THX DTS rumble seat sound and HD DLP video, then go to Atlantic Station and pay $16/person. If you want a place where you can go and watch a movie with a small crowd and no one really cares if you prop your feet on the seats in front of you (unless of course someone's sitting there... they might prefer that you didn't kick them in the head) then this is your place.

Be let's be honest... the real reason to go is to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Friday nights. If you want to see a bunch of people dressed in leather and lace and running around in their underwear, this is for you. If you have never seen RHPS with audience partici....pation, you should find someone that has or just paint a red V on your forehead (for RHPS virgin) and go on in. People are really into this movie and you should be able to find someone that will share their props with you and help you have a good time. There are often squirt guns, so if you don't want to get wet, take a newspaper and sit near the back. Sitting near the back also lowers your chances of being h1t (h1t is an inappropriate word?) in the head by a roll of toilet paper.

There will be lots of profanity and people yelling. If you don't have a sense of humor or you are homophobic then this probably isn't your scene. If you want to really get into there are websites that tell you what props to take and teach you some of the audience responses. It's a fun time.

Don't go to Plaza Atlanta

If you are a sensitive movie audience, if you care about the audiovisual quality that a movie theater offers to you simply don't go to Plaza Atlanta. They are screening the damaged copies of the movies!!! The sound quality was horrible; it was unbearable and alienating in Little Children. Sound was switching back and forth between left and right speakers. There was a scratchy noise that foreshadows the dialogs. Kate Winslet's voice was coming out like a man's voice. (This might be fun but if you want to concentrate on the movie it annoys you:) They are not putting up a warning sign to the ticket office to warn the audience before they sell the tickets. When I complained about the sound quality to the manager he told me that ""I know."" They know and they still keep showing the damaged copies. This is clearly stealing people's money and time. They are also unable to accept credit cards. You have to run to an ATM machine and miss the beginning of the movie and then give your money to them for watching a damaged copy.

not a good deal

Similar to other user's experiences I had a bad experience in this movie theater. They should not show a movie if it is damaged. If their set up is not functioning properly, they should fix it. Otherwise, it is not right to charge the viewers as if they are showing the movie in perfect quality. Seats are very uncomfortable, many of them are broken already. I kept hearing the sound coming from the next screening room, no sound isolation at all.

if you can't park there, try walking!!!

One of the only theaters in Atlanta you can walk to. This city's driving culture is appalling. Almost every theater here is a giant megaplex surrounded by acres of parking lots. The Lefont is an enticement to leave your car behind for once. Screenings include a good balance of indies, cult classics, and Hollywood blockbusters.

Lefont Plaza Rocks!

The Lefont Plaza is a GREAT Theatre! I am a member of the group that performs the Rocky Horror Picture Show there, and we have found that the theatre has an excellent amount of space, it's got an EXCELLENT location, and the management and employees are very accommodating and friendly!

Best flicks in town

All of the obscure movies visit Lefont. Its an old school theatre with plenty of charm...nice restaurants around the area. Perfect for an afternoon matinee or relaxing evening. Respectful crowds, never too noisy. People usually come because they want to see the movie, not to kill time.
