Regal Atlantic Station Stadium has been our primary movie theater since 2005. We were a student at Georgia Tech and back before Atlantic Station was built. Regal Hollywood Stadium 24 @ North I-85 was the movie theater we’d go to most often. During my college days and have returned, we saw a lot of movies at this theater. As far as, only a couple times, we can remember since Regal’s theater in Atlantic Station opened. A few weeks ago, we decided to make a special trip to revisit this theater, see how it’s doing, and then write a Yelp review about it.
In general, as we remember, this theater is just it from well over a decade ago. Actually, we didn’t notice any significant changes. Meanwhile, the Regal theater in Atlantic Station has been built, it offers IMAX, RPX (Regal Premium Experience), and VIP experiences. And it has undergone at least one major renovation. As newer theaters have been opened across metro such as Atlanta AMC, Regal, NGC, CineBistro, Studio Movie Grill. In time, this theater seems to be stuck. As a result, it has been left in the dust. It’s missing out on all the bells and whistles that have made moviegoing at other theaters more, while functionally it’s fine (it still satisfactorily serves its core purpose).
In auditorium 11, we saw Star Wars- The Last Jedi (2017). It had an old, musty, funky smell. I like it because Auditorium 11 has stadium-style seating and a cupholder for every seat. The armrests were immobile although the seats were comfortable. And we enjoyed the movie because the sound and picture quality were both good. Moreover, definitely, this theater is look like old. For example, in the men’s toilet, the faucets were a mishmash of different styles. And there are many appeared as if they had rusted over long ago. Overall, what the building really needs is a nice makeover (and who knows – maybe Regal realizes this and one is in the works), because it looks dated and patched up. At least, finding a spot isn’t a problem if the parking lot is HUGE.
As we all know for ticket pricing, we go out to the movies continues to get more and more expensive. For standard screen movies, matinee pricing ends at 3 pm (not 3D), is $13.15 per adult and $12.08 for children (age 3-11), and seniors (60+). Adult’s tickets are $15.29, and for children, seniors are still $12.08 after 3 pm. In these prices, the tax is also included. We didn’t bother to check out the concessions at these prices. As well as the ticket-taker, the lady who sold me the tickets was both nice.
At this theater, in 2009, the last movie we can remember seeing was Paranormal Activity (2007). After we had seen The Last Jedi (this was a 2007 movie shown in wide release in 09). We remember seeing Saw (2004) before that. It is a franchise that we fell in love with and saw every Halloween through 2010 (Saw VII). A year since we made many visits to this theater. We want to see movies such as Spider-Man, The Sum of All Fears, Bad Company, The Bourne Identity, Minority Report, Mr. Deeds, Like Mike, Men in Black II, Halloween: Resurrection, Austin Powers in Goldmember, Red Dragon, The Ring (twice), Jackass: The Movie, Empire, and The Hot Chick, we also have fond memories of 2002. In 2002, we really question my movie selection and taste back then (though it should be noted that those choices were also influenced by my friends and classmates at the time; it was a joint decision) when we look back at what else was released.
Ultimately, we enjoyed watching The Last Jedi here with no significant issues while this theater has a lot of flaws. Therefore, we give it 4 stars. But probably, we wouldn’t go out of our way again to come back unless they made some major renovations. For us, the theater in Atlantic Station is simply better and more convenient (within walking distance).
