Tied for fourth place were AMC Parkway Pointe 15, AMC Phipps Plaza, Cinebistro at Town Brookhaven and Regal Avalon 12.
Third place went to Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. This theater is a go-to in Atlanta to catch foreign and indie films, Toby Adeyemi wrote for the AJC last year. Landmark has a collection of films that includes some of the most popular movies playing overseas.
The Springs Cinema & Taphouse in Sandy Springs finished second with 31% of the votes. Formerly the LeFont Theatre Sandy Springs on Roswell Road, the property was sold and renovated in 2018, then reopened as The Springs Cinema & Taphouse.
Plaza Theatre on Ponce de Leon Avenue was the overwhelming winner, getting 63% of the votes. The Plaza Theatre first opened its doors in December 1939, making it one of the longest running movie theaters in Atlanta. The Plaza shows classic movies, current Hollywood blockbusters, and memorable productions, such as the "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," Adeyemi wrote.
