Atlanta Guide on OTLCityGuides.com
Welcome to the Atlanta City Guide on OTL City Guides!
If OTL sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same family-run brand behind the unique OTL Seat Fillers club. And, yes, seat fillers ARE in Atlanta!
The Atlanta Guide features Things to Do, Things to Eat, and Things to Learn. You’ll find the official Atlanta events calendar powered by Evvnt. It’s updated hourly, so you’ve always got current shows and activities at your fingertip. There are local directories, restaurant recommendations, and all kinds of fun and handy information.
What you won’t find – reviews, comments, and negativity. We welcome local submissions and are happy to post blogs, season schedules, and other Atlanta information. But, we’re leaving the discussions to social media. Enjoy!

Seat Fillers in Atlanta
Would YOU enjoy being an Atlanta area seat filler?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do I like free tickets?
- Am I a fan of live entertainment, like plays, musicals, comedy, music, etc.?
- Would I have fun seeing what pops up out of the blue (but aware that shows won’t always be available)?
- Do I think it would be fun to treat my family and friends to free tickets?
- Does my entertainment budget allow for $10 to $15 a month for all-inclusive seat filling privileges?
If you answered yes to all of the above, ask yourself one more question:
What am I waiting for?
Seat Filling in Atlanta
Do you have a show, event, service, or activity and would like to expand your audience or introduce it to some new patrons or customers?
If so, then local seat filling is effective marketing for the 21st century!
Here’s how it works:
- You let OTL know how many tickets or admissions you’d like to private offer to seat fillers
- OTL members make reservations in their member area
- The reservation/will-call list is sent to you
- You distribute the tickets or handle admission on the day of the event (or activity)
The only thing you need to provide is complimentary tickets/admission. But OTL never publicizes that you’re doing it!

Movies in Atlanta
Atlantians have the advantage of having both chain and independent cinemas all over the city. AMC and Regal are the two biggest movie theater chains in Atlanta, followed by NCG Cinemas, CMX Cinebistro, and Studio Movie Grill.
Rather than see the newest films on the big screen, why not check out Atlanta’s oldest operating theatre, the Plaza Theatre? Also, the Midtown Art Cinema, a Landmark Theatre, offers a wide range of screenings. In addition, the Fernbank Museum has a Giant Screen Theater where two different offerings are presented at a time.
And, how about a blast from the past? The Starlight Drive-in has been an Atlanta landmark for over 60 years. It’s open seven days a week, year-round.
You might not think about museums when you’re looking for things to do, but you should since they’re not “one size fits all.” Atlanta museums cover art, history, politics, fashion, and even one dedicated to Jim Henson and the Muppets.
Whether you are a history or art buff or just looking for something to do, you’ll enjoy several venues. Therefore, we have compiled a few of the top picks to post in the City Guides and a pocket guide to 40 museums in Atlanta!
Live Theater in Atlanta
You might not be aware of all of the theaters in Atlanta and the suburbs unless you are an avid theatergoer. We shine a spotlight on the local theater scene, from Broadway tours passing through to high school and college drama departments and one-person shows.
