This feature is quite interesting and a valuable resource for cinema news. There is one minor inconvenience. The articles do not always indicate the location of the city or country of origin. I know it takes a major effort to locate and consolidate these wonderful articles. Would it be possible to list the city, state, and country in parenthesis by each link? That would add considerably to the pleasure these articles already provide. There you go, give us something wonderful and we want more.

I clicked on this to make a comment, but John Coles seems to have said exactly what I was going to say. Please include the locale with the headline!

Yeah — don’t worry, guys. We’ll be experimenting with the format of Today’s Newsreel over the next few weeks.

We’ll see if it’s possible to implement your suggestions, though please keep in mind the intended simplicity of this feature. We really want to keep things short and sweet, so there might not be a good way to add all the extra info.

Besides, we’re also trying to make this feature fun, and let people discover each story for themselves.

Cinematreasures is fun! Don’t stress about the location of some of the news items in Today’s Newsreel. I don’t understand why publishers who post web sites assume the visitor knows where their newspaper is located. The world is still physically the same size it has always been. The internet may have made us a global community but it hasn’t made us psychic… yet.

It’s a challenge to determine where some of this wonderful and interesting news is coming from. Thank you so much for providing such a broad range of news about our favorite subject.
