Baileys Royal Theater - Circa 1940
The Odd Fellows Auditorium immediately became the center for African American entertainment in Atlanta. The roof garden created a space to dine and dance in an elegant atmosphere and performances by the likes of Count Basie and Lionel Hampton were not uncommon.
Circa 1940 Baileys Royal Theater made its home inside the Auditorium. With seating for approximatley 1200 it became the first theater where african americans were allowed to be seated on the main floor of a movie house.
In the Early 80's and over three million dollars later, the Odd Fellows complex, in the heart of the Sweet Auburn District, was restored and established a benchmark for redevelopment. The complex now contains over 50,000 square feet of prime commercial, retail, meeting and entertainment space.
Now this beautiful building can be the host location for your unforgettable event!
