Where to Find the Best Dollar Theater in Atlanta? (2024)

A “dollar theater” is what we call a movie theater that offers discounted tickets. They used to really only be $1, and even though they’re a bit more these days, they’re still well worth a visit.

A dollar theater is a great place to escape the summer heat (or winter chill!) without spending a lot of money. There are several dollar movie theaters that offer cheap movies in Atlanta.

It may not be the latest blockbuster, but the price sure beats regular movies fees. Here are some of the best dollar theaters in and around metro Atlanta.

Dollar Theater FAQ

Why have a lot of dollar theaters closed?

Many discount theaters have been driven out of business by an oversupply of new movie screens, which allowed movies to stay in theaters longer, which meant the time between the theater and home streaming was significantly shortened.

What is a second-run movie?

A second-run movie is a movie that’s re-released after its original run.

What were movie theaters called during the Roaring 20s?

Going to the movies was a big event in the 1920s and 1930s, and the theaters were quite grand, which was why they were often called Picture Palaces back in the day.
