Would it be easy to move to as a young person without having a lot of money? I know it's a little expensive but not too bad compared to other major cities. I want to be in the entertainment industry which is my reason for moving but I really want to go ASAP. Can I just wait tables and move to a run down part of the city with roommates and be able to make it work? Don't really want to sit here and save forever or go to college first

Entertainment industry, as in TV and Movies?
Yes, Atlanta has quite a few opportunities in those venues.
Do you have any SKILLS that they could use?
Cosmetics? Set building? Seamstress / Tailor? Carpenter?
(Remember, Harrison Ford started out as a carpenter)
I was acquainted with an eccentric lass who was a cosmetician, and went on location with movie companies every few months. She must have pulled big $$$$, she owned a house, supported a gang of friends who lived at her house, and so forth.
. . .
Atlanta Metro is a B I G area. If you do not have an automobile, you'll be hard pressed - the public transportation system is anemic. And the roads suffer gridlock during daily commutes.

Within Atlanta, it is expensive to live - not to mention the sky high water bills due to a huge revamp of the water and sewer system (EPA mandated).
(Exception - if you qualify, you may get subsidized)
Many live "outside the perimeter".
10 to 30 miles outside Atlanta are the "Bedroom" communities - somewhat cheaper.
30 to 50 miles outside Atlanta are the outer limits for commuters, and inexpensive housing.
. . .
CREATIVE LOAFING is an interesting reference to the area.

I would not recommend moving into "run down" areas, unless you enjoy being mugged, assaulted, or in the evening news as a chalk outline.

I recommend that you re-post this in the Atlanta forum. Lots of engaged and knowledgeable folks there who will be more than happy to give you good information.
