Landmark is where you go to see awesome independent films, second-runs, documentaries and classics you can't find anywhere else. In that context, it's a gem. Another positive is that they sell fairly decent food, and excellent booze, including microbrews. They have good parking, and plenty of restaurant options within the same complex. The downside is the condition of the building. When you walk in the door you're hit with a powerful smell of mildew. The bathrooms (even at the first movie of the day) were filthy, and some of the toilets had trouble flushing. The theater itself reeked of stale cigarette smoke. If you have strong allergies or asthma, you will probably have difficulties here. Whether or not it's worth it to see Monty Python on the big screen is up to you.

Best place3 in town for unconventional movies, plus you cant beat the location, with bars and restaurants, and I love drinking while watching a movie. Its never too crowded there either so I always know Im going to get a ticket. I little expensive though, 5 bucks for a pbr!

I remember when the Landmark Theatre used to be THE art cinema in Atlanta. Yeah, the prices were sometime a little more than other places, but you could always count on a great movie there, that would be impossible to find at other movie theaters. Unfortunately those days are gone. Now they're prone to showing the super #1 movie that's coming out, but unless there's a reason to see that movie in a classic theater, you'd be better off seeing the bigbudget movies at the megaplex. But they'll still show the more independent films every now and then, as well as Rocky Horror, which always makes it a worthwhile trip. Plus... they do have the best popcorn of all the Atlanta theatres.

Landmark is a great art-house-type theater, showing a variety of movies not in release at mainstream theaters, like documentaries and foreign films. The viewing rooms are spacious with a lot of character. Behind Piedmont Park, the theater is nestled in a shopping center with several restaurants, making it a great "destination" spot. Make a date to visit the Landmark Cinema, and you won't be disappointed!
