Fire engulfs Georgia Theatre
Nooooooooo! I’ve had so many great memories happen at the Theatre.
ATHENS, Ga. – Police say a major fire has erupted at the landmark Georgia Theatre in Athens that has been a venue for Georgia bands including REM., Widespread Panic and the B-52s.
Witnesses say the fire began around 7 a.m. and was a major blaze. They said the converted movie theater would likely suffer major damage.
In 2008, national touring acts such as the North Mississippi All-Stars, Galactic, Robert Earl Keen, Sister Hazel and Ghostface Killah played at the Georgia Theatre.
