The Plaza Atlanta Theatre has undergone many changes over its 75-year history. Originally opened as an Art Deco cinema, it began screening adult entertainment in the 1970s, and moved into the world of art-house features in the '90s. But the space's cinematic roots proved strong, and today it has reverted back to a classic movie palace, albeit one in glorious technicolor.
While its focus on entertaining audiences is charmingly vintage, the Plaza Atlanta Theatre is every inch the modern building. The renovated venue showcases new releases and cult classics via crystalline digital projection, and welcomes visitors with cushy chairs and gourmet concessions. It champions the next generation of filmmakers, too, inviting budding directors to rent the space, show their movies, and keep the ticket sales. Those dreaming of careers in DVD commentary can stop by monthly Cineprov nights, during which performers lend their humorous live critiques to over-the-top Hollywood fare. The theater has won widespread acclaim for its unique environs and varied programming?Men's Journal even named it the fifth best movie house in the world, a fitting tribute for the city's longest running independent theater.

Besides sessions catered to beginning through advanced improvisers alike, Whole World teaches courses for kids and professional actors tired of having to speak only in iambic pentameter. The actors also happily venture beyond the theatre's walls for private events such as team-building workshops or cocktail parties.
