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.

Tell us about your museum.
The APEX offers a unique look at history from an African-American perspective. We do not begin our story with slavery, but rather with Africa and its rich splendor and glory. It is important to know that from this rich continent came medicine, math, architecture, science, and much more.
What are some of your unique exhibits that stand out from other museums?
The APEX has recreated scenes from Atlanta's Sweet Auburn, which Fortune Magazine in 1957 called "the richest Negro street in the world." Here you can see a replica of the Yates & Milton drug store, [which was] famous as a gathering place. You can also board the replica of a vintage trolley and watch a video called The Journey, narrated by Ossie Davis, and Sweet Auburn Street of Pride, narrated by Cicely Tyson.
Why is Black History Month important to you?
While Black History Month is important because it brings attention to a very important segment of our community, our theme here at the APEX is, "where every month is Black History Month."
What does being a black business owner mean to you?
Black business ownership is important because it symbolizes the strength and tenacity of a people who have endured hardships and emerged undaunted.
Where do you hope to see your museum and community in the next five years?
The APEX plans to build on its adjoining lot, a 90,000 square-foot facility with a complete "walk-through" [of] history in EPCOT Center fashion.
Why did you decide to work with Groupon again?

Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
