During the time I lived in Atlanta, the Roxy in Buckhead was a live music venue, but historically it's one of a handful of grand old movie theaters that have survived the years.
I sadly never got to see a band play here but have heard it was a favorite venue for many in the city in its heyday. I was booked to see one band here not long before it was shuttered and that act cancelled. Alas!
I've off and on heard snippets of news that the theater was going to be redeveloped. Much of Buckhead was in the process of changing during my last years in the city. The nightlife bar scene was being pushed out to other areas of the city and the Buckhead that was so well known was being pushed out and paved over.
I was determined to get a shot of this old marquee, though, for my iconic scenes of Atlanta because I think many who lived in Atlanta in the right time period will remember this sign with much fondness!
