SITE UPGRADE: Search Engine Improvements

We’ve also made a number of enhancements to the search engine in our Theater Guide.

  • Zipcode search — now you can find your favorite theaters by zipcode! Zipcode search also allows you to search for theaters with 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 miles from your present location. Just enter your local zipcode, select the desired proximity, and you’ll be able to find all the Cinema Treasures nearby!

  • Search theaters by previous name and description — many of you have asked to search our theater guide using a theater’s previous name, so we’re glad to finally offer this feature. When searching for theaters by name, you’re now able to search for any combination of the current theater name (the default for most searches), previous names, and even search within a theater’s description.

  • Switching between ‘Name’ and ‘City’ searches is now easier — in previous versions of Cinema Treasures, switching between these two types of searches was cumbersome. Now, when you switch from one tab to the other, our search engine automatically preserves your search query and automatically returns results for the current query — which makes searching faster.

  • Search results are now easier to browse — thanks to enhancements in our Theater Guide, you can now view all of your search results on a single page!
