Last fall, metro Atlanta film and history buffs were saddened to hear Atlanta’s historic Tara Theatre would close after almost 55 years of movie magic and memories. However, Chris Escobar, owner of The Plaza Theatre and executive director of Atlanta Film Society, recently announced The Tara will reopen in spring 2023.
The team led by Escobar also created the Friends of Tara Foundation, a nonprofit organization and fundraising division to support the theatre’s long-term viability, with an initial goal to raise $50,000 before reopening.
The public may support The Tara by purchasing advance tickets, gift cards or donating through its website.
