The Tara Theatre was opened in 1968 by Loew's Theatres. It embodies the modern architectural style popular at the time. Originally called Loew's Tara, the theater's name memorializes the fictional Tara plantation, home of the O'Hara family in Margaret Mitchell's novel Gone With the Wind. Tara opened as a single screen theater with seating for 1,200, but was later twinned. In the 1970s, two more screens were added. In the 1980s United Artists Theatres bought the Tara. The Tara's lobby features checkerboard tiles and large hanging portraits of Hollywood movie stars, such as Greta Garbo, Sean Connery, and Charlie Chaplin.
