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.
The Dinner Detective's renowned troupe of talented actors engages audiences with an evening of laughs, intrigue, and suspense with modern plots and no campy rehearsed lines as mock murder accompanies a four-course meal where everyone in attendance is a suspect. A dressed-down cast of professional Hollywood- and Chicago-trained sleuths circulates through the crowd, sniffing out phony alibis and asking the hard questions to solve the mystery of each whodunit. Before the night is over, the fictional criminal is cuffed and the most accurately detecting diner takes home a prize package.
The Dinner Detective leases out its gumshoes to clean up crime during private events such as fundraisers, family reunions, or embezzlement hearings. The thespians have sharpened their entertaining chops by performing for such Fortune 500 companies as Universal Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.

In 2008, a league of family farmers was struggling to educate the restaurant industry and the public about the value of heritage breed pigs when they found a winning combination: five chefs, five pigs, five winemakers. To spread their message, Cochon 555 organized a tour of 10 US cities where they'd challenge five top chefs to craft gourmet dishes, each using their own whole heritage pig. The fine-dining extravaganza would be paired with tastings from five distinguished wineries.
As it turns out, chefs are competitive and diners love pork. The nationwide quest for the best culinary interpretations has helped raise the profile of sustainable agriculture and drive the popularity of such events. In return, Cochon 555 has expanded to provide even more flavor experiences across the country—always featuring reponsibly raised animals, premium wines and spirits, and other gourmet products.
Grand Cochon: The regional 555 winners converge on the national finale to compete for the crown of King or Queen of Porc.
Heritage Fire: Chefs exercise their wood-fired cooking muscles by preparing whole farm-raised animals, including lamb, rabbit, and birds, over the flames.
Heritage BBQ: A friendly competition has chefs using whole heritage pigs for dishes that celebrate global barbecue cultures.
Cochon Island: Culinary luminaries head to locales like Puerto Rico and Hawaii for an outdoor celebrate of nose-to-tail cooking.
Chef's Course: A rewards program ideal for well-traveled diners, who receive complimentary tasting portions from member chefs, farms, and brands. They also get access to periodic five-course dinner events.
