ATLANTA — An Atlanta landmark that has been closed for several years is set to reopen. The Buckhead Theater, formerly known as the Roxy, will host its first event Friday night.

Located near the intersection of Peachtree, Paces Ferry and Roswell Roads, the Buckhead Theater was purchased by Charles Loudermilk, the founder of Aaron’s Rents, now Aaron’s, Inc. Loudermilk has invested in the renovation of the Buckhead Theater, which is nearly complete.

“It’s the only historic thing left in Buckhead,” Loudermilk told 11Alive’s Brenda Wood during an interview in 2007. “I’m going to make it a first-class facility.”
