NotesThe Atlanta Theater was built in 1911 by Joel Hurt and was located on Exchange Place in Atlanta, Georgia. The theater ran traditional theater acts as well as cinema pictures, and hosted trade shows, wrestling matches, and burlesque. The theater's patronage fell after the construction of the Erlanger Theater, and was eventually demolished in 1954.
