After dominating the art film market for decades, George Lefont is experiencing considerable competition these days, but his Ponce de Leon PLAZA THEATRE still puts a hometown imprint and funky neighborhood vibe on a mix of mainstream and art house fare that no art film tsunami can match. With both Inman Park yuppies and L5P goths in the house, the theater truly speaks to cinema's ability to unite diverse audiences. The upstairs theater is cozy but aesthetically nutty, like a dinky home theater, but the mothbally downstairs space with its tacky floors, musty air and vintage fixtures is a flashback to old-timey moviegoing. Either way, the theater is as iconoclastic as its still edgy Poncey-Highland location. "1049 Ponce de Leon Ave., 404-873-1939. www.lefonttheaters.com" less...

With the 2003 opening of the LANDMARK MIDTOWN ART CINEMA, the Midtown Promenade strip mall suddenly became a destination, crawling with hipsters and offering one-stop shopping for much of the best art, documentary and foreign film in town. A great lobby makeover, reasonably portioned snacks at the concessions stand and a friendly staff all take the suck out of megaplex, along with programming that occasionally embraces the truly imaginative, as with its screening of the entire avant-garde Matthew Barney "Cremaster" cycle.

The selling points of MADSTONE THEATER PARKSIDE could fill a marquee. The newly opened theater in a national art-house cinema chain gives you additional chances to see indie or foreign fare like "Whale Rider" or "Spellbound". It puts a premium on comfort and customer service, so the facility boasts gourmet snacks and plenty of leg room. Atlantans are only slowly discovering it, so it's not an overcrowded venue for mainstream films like "Seabiscuit" or "X-2". But the most appealing thing about it is its idiosyncratic choices. Market research wouldn't dictate that the theater schedule a midnight show of "Donnie Darko" or revive Terrence Malick's 1978 film "Days of Heaven" - which proved an unexpected hit, playing through an astonishing 18 weeks. It's the rare theater chain that genuinely loves movies - and movie-goers. "5920 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, 404-252-2000. www.madstonetheaters.com" less...

The best cineplex chains offer stadium seating, spacious rows, cup-holders and quality sound and projection, treating films and fans with the respect they deserve. REGAL CINEMAS HOLLYWOOD 24 stands apart from its siblings with its indie cred, having hosted many screenings of this year's Atlanta Film & Video Festival, giving audiences the opportunity to see heartfelt documentaries and homemade features in the kind of environment usually given over to studio popcorn movies.

Though it may not be the best theater in town in terms of sheer visual quality or comfort, Tara certainly has a flare for finding and keeping an always eclectic and engaging array of art house films and critically acclaimed sleepers. less...

Cinefest Film Theatre at Georgia State University 66 Courtland St. OK according Hoyle Georgia State student run cinema may not pass muster as a first run theater but since this admittedly tiny venue only runs a limited offering we decided that it deserves a break. With the most varied playlist of any local theater featuring everything from cutting edge animation, foreign, fave, classic, cult film, indy, seldom seen this side of New York, Cinefest Film Theatre is the Mother's Milk for serious film buffs. So what if it is on a small screen. Three bucks make it one of the biggest bargains in town. less...

Gotta love our diverse readership! This photofinish has something for everyone, whether the urban art house vibe, sticky floors and all, is your thing (they don't come much more urban-y and art house-ish than the Lefont Plaza) or the tony mall-plex ambience of Phipps, one of the few multi-screens to throw up the occasional independent. And if size counts, Regal's cinema concourse, with 24 screens and stadium seating as far as the eye can see, may be a bit of a drive, but it definitely takes home the big blue ribbon. less...
