Plans recently filed with City of Atlanta call for a $2,500,000 transformation of the theatre in the Midtown Promenade shopping center, at 931 Monroe Dr NE.

The movie theatre in its entirety will get a refresh including the exterior storefront, auditoriums, concessions, restrooms, and workrooms.

ADW Architects—an architecture, planning, and interior design firm specializing in entertainment venues (among other uses)—is behind the renovation. The firm has overhauled other Landmark Theatres including the Coral Gables, Florida location.

ADW would not share project specifics or renderings at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema’s request.

While exact plans have not been disclosed, $2,500,000 will go a long way.

AMC in 2012 only spent $1,200,000 overhauling its Phipps Plaza theatre. That project included the addition of stadium-style seating with power recliners with footrests, a new bar and marketplace, and a renovation of the theatre’s restrooms, box office and lobby area.

Landmark Theatres did not immediately return What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.

Here are some renderings of ADW’s Coral Gables project:

Nice! Glad to hear they’re doing well enough to sink this kind of money in the place. Love having this amenity within walking distance!

I love this theater. I hope they can keep it open during the renovation.

This is exciting news! It’s been a long time coming. As much as I love the cinematic offerings, the quality of the seats, projection and HVAC has been an issue for a long time. Couldn’t help but notice that there was no time-line in the article. Figured it’ll be at least 90 days. Maybe Tara and Place will benefit from the temporary closure.

I hope they dont have to close down for any length of time but it will be nice renovating it

Landmark has a habit when they remodel to cut their large auditoriums in half to add more tiny screens. They loose seating with recliners. Lets hope they don’t do this in Atlanta.

I think this is just a wonderful idea I have been coming down here for over 15 plus years now and this would be the best thing ever can’t wait to see the new theater
