Welcome to Plazadrome: Videodrome and Plaza Theatre’s partnership is building a new community of film lovers
Movie theaters have famously struggled to get a streaming-obsessed audience out of their Cloud sofas and back into the multiplex—with the exception of Atlanta’s historic Plaza Theatre. Working alongside another bastion of Atlanta film culture, Videodrome, the Plaza has become a buzzing nexus of cinema since owner Chris Escobar took over in 2017. With the launch of “Plazadrome” collaborations in 2018, the film synergy has been off the charts.
As we slowly win back some of the hallmarks of normalcy we were forced for so long to do without, we must also bid goodbye to the quirky innovations that took their place. The Plaza Theatre's drive-in service is one of those.
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, but there’s no need to scour the internet for the perfect gift. Local sellers are bursting with thoughtful options for any type of date.
Sevananda for party favors, Kookie House for custom-made cookies, and wine from Hop City—Beca Grimm, a Dope Girls zine cofounder, shops local to ring in 2020 with a Babysitter’s Club–themed bash at home.
Videodrome, the roughly 2,000-square-foot shop at the corner of North Highland and North avenues, is the last video store standing in Atlanta that is not of the XXX variety. It is an oasis for film buffs (and the occasional visiting celebrity) who are suckers for special features, director’s cuts, or not letting Netflix’s algorithms ration out their media diets.
