The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival has added a second Sandy Springs location and dropped its Alpharetta theater for the 2017 festival, being held Jan. 24 to Feb. 15.
Joining the festival’s longtime anchor theater, Lefont Sandy Springs, is Regal Perimeter Pointe, next to the Sandy Springs MARTA station and easily accessible from the Perimeter and Ga. 400. Regal’s Avalon, a 2016 festival venue, will not be part of the festival.
As in 2016, the 2017 festival will open at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and close at the Woodruff Arts Center’s Atlanta Symphony Hall.
Also remaining part of the festival are Georgia Theatre Co.’ s Merchants Walk location in East Cobb, Regal’s Tara Cinemas at Cheshire Bridge and LaVista roads, and Regal’s Atlantic Station theaters.
SCADshow, a first-time festival venue that had some parking issues in 2016, will not be included in 2017. Instead, the festival will have a five-day run at the Woodruff Arts Center’s Rich Auditorium, another sizable intown space.
The festival lineup will be announced and tickets will go on sale in mid-January.
