1,000 UK Theaters on Cinema Treasures!

posted by Michael Zoldessy on September 10, 2007 at 8:15 am

The United Kingdom has become the second country (behind the United States) to have 1,000 theaters listed on Cinema Treasures. We’ve had some great milestones over the years and this one certainly ranks pretty high.

Thanks to Ken Roe, Bryan Krefft and everyone else for compiling this valuable information. Thanks to our users and the hard working CT Team, we’re well on our way to creating the ultimate cinema history resource.

The timing of this article is most interesting! I have just received a ton of facts and listings of cinemas in my former home town of SOUTHAMPTON.

As soon as I have finished editing, I’ll update CT’s list of British cinema/theaters. Many have fascinating anecdotes and pictures.

Congrats to Ken Roe and others who have built up the listings of UK cinemas and theatres here in CT.

Ken or Bryan,
Can either of you give info on a cinema I visited in Newquay, Cornwall, in October 1960? It was then called the Camelot. I went to a matinee of “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice,” and there were 3 people in the nicely maintained little theater. The big shocker was the great projection. A 70mm short (on a greatly expanded screen), standard news, CinemaScope trailer, and wide screen feature, all with two projectors and deluxe (curtains & lights) presentation baetween all elements throughout. It looked like the cinema was being operated by a hobbyist as well as a perfectionist.

PaulNoble; Rather than do a history here, I will add the Camelot Cinema, Newquay to the main database. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. btw, “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” was released in 1969.

Sorry, typo. It was October 1970, not 1960.
