ATHENS BURNING OPENS AT CINE TONIGHT
Tonight, Athens Burning a locally-produced documentary centered around the history of the Georgia Theater in Downtown Athens opens at Cine (running through 4-28). The film begins with the burning of the historic theater in summer 2009, and then chronologically charts the history of the Athens music scene from the 1970’s through the present. Athens Burning features interviews and performance footage from notable artists who performed at the venue over the years and the players in the music scene and at the theater over the decades; the film also documents the catastrophic fire, the fundraising efforts from the local community, and the re-construction of the theater.
