“Athens biggest music venue”
The Georgia Theatre is a prominent music venue in Athens, Georgia, located in an old cinema. The Theatre is on the Athens Music History Walking Tour sponsored by the Athens Convention and Visitors Bureau. The Theatre opened as a music venue in 1978, with the band Sea Level playing. The Police played a show at the Theatre in 1979, on their first American tour. The Theatre then shut down again in the early 1980s and spent a few years as a movie house with occasional shows. It was reopened as a venue in 1989 and the Theatre has since hosted many of the major touring acts that come through Athens.
