In 2010 The Roxy Theater, an Atlanta landmark, was renamed The Buckhead Theatre and renovated to reclaim the magic and dazzle of its jazz-era beginnings. Central to Buckhead nightlife for more than 80 years, The Buckhead Theatre is steeped in the lively spirit of its history, yet fully modernized to accommodate today’s multifaceted forms of entertainment and special events. The restorative vision for this magical Atlanta landmark is credited to R. Charles Loudermilk. The Buckhead Theatre is located at 3110 Roswell Road (near the intersection of Roswell Road & Peachtree Road).
