I've been going to the Tabernacle to see shows ever since they converted this space for the Olympics (it was a House of Blues back then). It's a great place to see a concert and boy is it LOUD! I know I'm getting older, but every time I go there I tell myself I need to bring earplugs next time. I love the SRO floor space. Just watch out for the barely marked "aisles" (rubber runners on the floor). Security tries to keep them open and to control crowds will often not let you back near the stage if you have to leave for a drink. The first balcony is great too - more mellow but close to the action. The upper balcony is not bad either but the sound isn't nearly as good and this seems to be the loudest part of the venue. Plus you really are way up high. Don't miss out on a chance to see a concert at this converted Baptist tabernacle in downtown and be sure to drop by Sidebar before or after - it's just a few blocks away.
My husband and I got married on August 31, 2013. Pristine Chapel and our wedding coordinator Melaine Riviera went above and beyond every expectation…
I don’t get the chance to go here often, but when I do I really enjoy myself. CineBistro is great. The food is just alright, the drinks are okay and the experience is even better. There’s lots of space and room for legs to stretch out and the seats are relaxing. I do wish the movie selection was better. They also take a while to order you get ready to start the movie. Occasionally, they are still bringing in food as the movie begins and I’d rather have mine before it starts. Sometimes they just don’t offer the films that I want to see. Additionally, the price point is a bit expensive in comparison to a regular movie visit so this place is only for date night or rare girls night. I’ll go back but will definitely eat before hand and just have a drink.
I love Village Theater! It is one of the smaller and more intimate comedy theaters in Atlanta, but that's what makes it so great. Awesome comedians (there are a few regulars that are my favorites) and normally a great crowd. It's an improv theater, and they also teach improv classes that anyone can sign up for. You can purchase beer/wine and some snacks in the lobby before the show and at intermission - the alcohol is pretty cheaps, so load up! You can also purchase whole bottles and share with your group which is nice. Easy, free parking behind the theater as well!
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!
You can't ask for a better place to catch a movie. Actually you could but they seemed to have thought of it already and now offers a VIP movie experience. Adults only with food and alcohol service. I can't wait to go back and take advantage of that. Overall the theater is clean, the staff friendly & nice and they will validate your parking ticket for you. It's a win win situation going to the movies here.
We went here for the Josh Groban concert. I love the fact that you can bring your own cooler and alcohol in. But make sure you check your tickets before you do, as some artists do not allow outside alcohol and coolers during their concerts. I highly recommend you Uber to this place, because parking is a nightmare. The seats are uncomfy, but other than that, it's a cool venue.
Yeah, this theater has waiters and serves popcorn in bowls and hamburgers and fries and all that good stuff. But the real reason to go here is the seating. Instead of small, cramped theater seats with tall people in front of you blocking your view, you get comfy lounge chairs. These seats swivel and move and are much more comfortable than normal seating.
Fun night. Guaranteed. We have been to 3 plays and all of them were awesome. The staff are great and welcoming. The actors are true talents. Great place for quality theatre at a more than reasonable price. Currently playing is The City of Conversation and trust me you will be having major conversations with people after this play.
