NCG Cinemas is taking over a large space in Northeast Plaza on Buford Highway where it plans to open an 11-screen theater before the end of the year.

The new movie theater will be opening in the 32,334-square-feet location where another movie theater was located years ago and where the Atlanta Peach Ballroom, a Latino nightclub, operated before closing about three years ago.
