Theater chains are going back to the past for inspiration for the newest mega-palaces being constructed across the country by circuits like Loews, Muvico, AMC, Krikorian, Pacific, Harkins, and more. As journalist Andreas Fuchs writes in this Hollywood Reporter article, “These days, successful multiplex design involves emulating stylish hotels, evoking nostalgia for classic theaters and renovating or expanding on those original palaces of dreams.”

This is a great piece (click on the blue link in the paragraph; the brown link at the top does not work) that may be hearlding a resurgence in SHOWMANSHIP again in exhibition. Heaven knows we have long needed it! Let’s hope it comes to a theatre near each of us. Maybe the actual old movie palaces can’t return, but at least the new multiplexes can look like them.
