Brandt Gully Owner of The Springs Cinema & Taphouse on Georgia Business Radio
Brandt Gully, Owner The Springs Cinema & Taphouse
Brief Description of Service: Hollywood Blockbusters to Indie Films and Classics
After having spent his entire career providing financial advisory services to more than 100 movie theatre operators coast-to-coast, Atlanta area native, Brant Gully has purchased Sandy Springs’ LeFont Theater. His first step in purchasing the theater was changing the name to The Springs Cinema & Taphouse, and he has plans in place for making the theater one of the premiere entertainment venues in the Atlanta Metropolitan area.
Most recently, as co-founder and partner at investment banking firm, EFA Partners, Gully helps entertainment and theater owners raise money to buy, renovate, or build theatres and sell their companies. So when he learned that George LeFont was interested in selling this beloved neighborhood cinema, Gully jumped at the opportunity.
Since purchasing the theater in November, Gully has embarked upon a complete overhaul of the eight-screen theater: replacing all seats with the city’s only luxury heated, electric recliners, as well as implementing reserved seating, improving the sound system and lighting, constructing point of sale terminals inside the building, laying new flooring and creating a cutting-edge esthetic throughout the building. Additionally, he is adding a full bar in the lobby, crafting a face-lift for the building facade, and increasing food and beverage offerings. “My goal at The Springs is to maintain the selection of quality films that the theater has been known for, as well as expanding programming to include unique art house films, blockbusters, fan favorites, children’s programming and even creating a setting for business presentations and events,” states Gully. “Listening to our loyal followers is essential to me and I have heard what changes are important to them, as well as what people want to stay the same. What our guests will see at The Springs Cinema & Taphouse will absolutely reflect these requests,” concludes Gully.
The Springs Theater & Taphouse is located at 5920 Roswell Road, Suite C103 in Sandy Springs. For up to the minute movie information, please call 404.255.0100 and 404.255.0140 for the theater office.
