This announcement is now up at the Georgia Theater‘s website:
It is with immense emotion that we sadly report the Georgia Theatre burned down this morning. There are a lot more questions than answers right now and we will do our best to keep the public informed as we learn more.
We appreciate all of the support that the great folks of Athens have provided and the additional messages received from wonderful patrons from around the world.
