Spotlight Theatres screens enrapture audiences with first-run movies. In each movie house, digital sounds and visual projections of fresh Hollywood films alight inner emotions of audiences resting in plush, high-backed stadium seats—each outfitted with a coin-operated mustache comb—or thrown directly into the action through 3-D technology. As eyes and ears relish motion-picture pursuits, soda, candy, and bounties of salty, crunchy popcorn emerge from the concession stand to occupy chatty mouths or catapult towards the screen to feed the hungry actors.

In his poem “Back Roads to Macon,” Raymond Farr captures the small-town charm of Cordele when describing a mailbox's hand-painted sign scribbled with the folksy adage: "Whatever your destination, thank God you arrive." Farr’s muse sits off the beaten path—about 2.5 hours south of Atlanta—dotted with antique shops and quirky specialty museums showcasing the history of cotton-farm tools and vast collections of telephones. The dry Atlantic coastal-plain climate permits year-round outdoor activities, many of which can be pursued on or near the resort grounds, including 3 miles of hiking trails through a wetland ecosystem inhabited by deer, red foxes, and lost hikers.
