The Theatre Historical Society of America is, for the first time, offering a special discount to Cinema Treasures members for its annual Conclave/Theatre Tour this summer.

The five-day tour is in a different part of the country each year and visits two dozen historic theatres. This year, it will be in Milwaukee and Minneapolis June 19-24. Among the theatres to be visited are the Pabst, Riverside, Warner, Oriental, Zenith, Avalon, Modjeska, Warner and Paradise in Milwaukee; the Fitzgerald, Heights, Shubert, Orpheum, State and Pantages in Minneapolis; and the Capitol, Manitowoc; Meyer, Green Bay; Grand Opera House, Oshkosh. A highlight will be the 1915 Al. Ringling Theatre in Baraboo WI, regarded as the first true movie palace.

In addition, the tour includes an opening reception, silent auction, and final banquet.

A complete Conclave/Theatre tour brochure is available on the THSA website. See below.

Cinema Treasures members can register for the same rate as THSA members, which is $400, a $75 savings over the ‘non-member’ rate on the ‘early-bird’ registration through April 27, and $450, after that date, a $25 savings. To receive the special discount, simply enter “CT2007” in the Promotional Code box on the online registration page.

For full Conclave/Theatre tour information, and to register online, go to the THSA Website.

The Theatre Historical Society of America is a non-profit educational organization

It also operates an Archive with material on 15,000 theatres in the U.S., and the American Movie Palace Museum, at its headquarters in Elmhurst, IL.

In 2005, THSA presented its first Outstanding Book Award to Cinema Treasures: A New Look at Classic Movie Theaters by Ross Melnick and Andreas Fuchs.

Terrific idea! I’ve been a THSA member since 1987, and have registered, but this is a wonderful way to get folks in Cinematreasures easily introduced to THSA. This is a great example of “symbiosis” between these kindred organizations—one relatively new, and one relatively venerable.

IMPORTANT NOTE! – We have just extended the ‘early’ online registration rate for our Conclave/Theatre Tour through May 4, 2007 to enable Cinema Treasures members to take advantage of this special rate. The CT discount will also apply to the ‘regular’ online rate after May 4th.

We hope you will join us!
