After more than 75 years in Atlanta, the Plaza Theatre still thrives at its Poncey-Highland location, and Atlanta INtown details the theater's sordid history. Opened in 1939, the art deco movie house catered to the car-centric city, located in the first shopping center to have off-street parking. While neighborhood decline spurred the theater to go the X-rated route in the 1970s, it's come back with a vengeance — and weekly Rocky Horror Picture Show showings — and is a steadfast anchor in a thriving neighborhood.
