One of the only art cinemas in the state of Georgia. You can find some of the Hollywood blockbusters you find at any 24 screen theater in the burbs. You wont find things like the Transformers here. While the number one concern for the managers of other theaters is making sure people dont sneak into an extra movie or maintaining profit margins on concessions, this place is different. The top priority is very obviously the selection of films and the organizing of great film events. What you will find here are ongoing events and nights where you can join others in rewatching classic films like DeNiro in Raging Bull or you will find international films that big 24 screen movie theaters will NEVER play. Obscure movies like Motorcycles Diaries and Chocolate that end up being big hits get their chance at this theater and of course other like it across the country. But this one is ours. Many people will hate this theater precisely because it does what other theaters dont, presents a true artistic film-going opportunity and experience, as opposed to just another place for Hollywood to hang any old thing. If youre tired of conventional Hollywood, visit this place and enjoy great movies you might not have even heard of otherwise. If youre coming to the theater for the bells and whistles of the building, there are better offerings in Atlanta. If you are looking for an artistic cinema, this is the place to be (as well as the Tara on Cheshire Bridge). Have fun at the movies!
I went to an advance screening here this past week and it was my first time visiting the theater. The theater itself is quite small but everyone who worked there was very nice and helpful. I was not a fan of how the theater looked on the inside. Im not entirely sure what look they were going for but the colors and everything used just kind of turned me off. Once you get into one of the theaters they are decent. No stadium seating, that would be impossible here considering the complex the theater is in, but the theaters are a good size there just isnt a whole lot of room to move once you sit. This is a place I would go to if I lived closer but since I live about 45 minutes away, unless Im going to another advance screening, I wont be coming back anytime soon.

Horrible experience! The manager on duty, Stephen Wilczak, gave a guy permission to let his kid actually WATCH ANOTHER MOVIE on his iPad while the main movie was going on! Despite repeated requests from patrons to comply with the posted no cell/phones devices policy! Mr. Wilczak said that his decision was a "judgement call" and that he did not think that the flashing screen and loud volume of another movie would bother other patrons!!!! I cant imagine that this would be appropriate even in the most commercial of theaters, but especially not in a self-proclaimed "art theater"! Still awaiting response from the true management of Landmark and will post followups.
This is not your IMAX movie going experience. The theater is old with no bells and whistles. Its great for those low keyed and independent films. You get beer and you get popcorn which is always a good choice selection. The staff is amazingly friendly. My niece purchased two tickets from the self service kiosk accidentally and they gave her back her money with no problem and she had enough time to buy popcorn and get into her seat before previews started. made it it time to buy popcorn before the movie started. Go to see a great movie, not to be wowed by special effects or comfort seating.
Great movie theater with reasonable ticket prices and movies that you cant find anywhere else (foreign, independent, etc). Dont expect the Ritz, but thats half the charm. Who wants all the glam with no personality? Personally I prefer places like this "hole in the wall" that has more character in its movie selection, patrons, and style. Check it out, I think youll be as impressed as me. What do you have to lose? There will be another expensive movie theatre chain you can go back to if this doesnt meet your requirements. To each their own. Hope you give it a chance though!
This was the only theatre in Atlanta that was showing Tom Fords Nocturnal Animals so I decided to take a trip and was pleasantly surprised! It has a very artsy vibe as they show a lot of foreign, independent and classic films in addition to contemporary. Its also very small and intimate and though the refreshments were terribly overpriced the selection was pretty nice! The immediate area is nice as well with lots of stores and restaurants nearby so grabbing a bite after the movie should not be a problem. I think I may make this a monthly trip for the hubby and I!
I bought tickets to see the midnight premiere of The Hobbit. 12:01 passes without the movie starting. Everyone waited patiently until 12:20am. Still no management had come to say anything. A guy around me went to see what was wrong. The projector was broken, which wouldnt have been so bad if they had just told us what was up and given us a time estimate of when it would be fixed. My partner and I just ended up getting our money back about 12:30am, thinking there might be a rush coming soon. Im very disappointed to say the least.
I gave this place a try because its something about Atlantic Station I dont like...maybe price gauging with bad service at the meat counter...I dont think the big special SOUND room is a big deal I think its what a movie is supposed to sound like...anyway I got on a tangent there...Landmark has indy films which I love as well as the big screen movies...They are always pleasant and quick...its clean and just a laid back atmoshpere as well there are usually less TALKERS at the Landmark..Im going in a few to see Steve Jobs!
I really want to give a one star so people wont go to this little hidden gem! I love this theater! Decor is totally 80s vibe. You can get standard concession goodies along with a beer or cocktail of your choice! The prices are soooo great. My husband and I can go here, buy two tickets, large popcorn and two large sodas (free refills for all large items!), for the price of around $30. You will spend more than that at fancy theatres! If you want high tech, glitz, dozens upon dozens of people, then dont come here.
The good old Midtown may have its flaws (parking sometimes a problem), but its home! Great central location, excellent selection of films, both popular and esoteric; the people are friendly, and I like the vibes! I also like the popcorn and an occasional hot dog. No, it doesnt have IMAX 3-D, but I can live without that for 97% of my films. Finally, the folks around you are pleasant and generally knowledgeable about film. Gotta love the Midtown!

I went to this theater for the first time yesterday to see the movie. The movie was great, however I was disappointed at the concessions (the popcorn was barely warm and tasted like it had been sitting there overnight. In addition the restroom was in need of much cleaning and smelled bad. It was 4:30 pm on a mid-week day with little traffic , I would not have been so disappointed if it were during the weekend or after 6pm during the week.
