Silverspot Cinema is moving forward in The Battery Atlanta but won’t open this year as originally announced.

The dine-in theatre is now targeting a 2020 debut.

Silverspot Cinema only recently completed permitting in Cobb County after Collins | Webb Architecture in May finalized its drawings for the boutique theatre, at 950 Battery Avenue. 

Building the new 50,000-square-foot Silverspot Cinema will cost $16,000,000, according to a newly-surfaced project website.

It will feature ten auditoriums divided between two stories, in-theatre dining, and a bar and lounge on the main floor, a “unique” feature “to this specific location.”

Silverspot Cinema will also have a “V.I.P. theatre” for special events.

The theatre is one of several major developments coming soon to The Battery Atlanta.

An Aloft Hotel with a Savi Provisions and Jittery Joe’s Coffee is also planned in the mixed-use development.

Thyssenkrupp is relocating its headquarters to The Battery Atlanta and with it building an elevator “test tower.”

      1. …hours of lounging, drinking and whatnot.
        In other words, is there a critical mass for this type of development…love to see the market research.

        1. There are 6 Million plus people in the Atlanta metro area. 2.5 million people attended games at SunTrust Park/The Battery last year. The population within 5 miles is about 220,000 and the average Household income within those 5 miles is $90,000+. Over 1,000 people live on property at the Battery and 3,000 work on property. 4 hotels are located on or adjacent to the property (1 under construction). The new North America corporate headquarters for elevator giant Thyssenkrupp with almost 1,000 new jobs is under construction on property. Within the 5 miles of this developement, there is only 1 movie theatre to serve the local market. All signs point to this being a very successful addition to the area.

  1. Movies are not a team outing and many of the entertainment activities at The Battery cater to team outings.
    I just don’t see this concept lasting more than a few years.

    1. Have you actually been to the Battery? I’m not sure exactly you are referring to as the “entertainment activities” that cater to team events. I was there last night..a Wednesday, No game going on…the restaurants were buzzing with lots of people and many pedestrians walking around. These were not “team events” by any stretch. The affluent population in the surrounding areas is supporting the Battery even on non game days. No reason to think a movie theatre won’t make it. It will only create a more fully developed destination.
