Today’s Newsreel

It’s been awhile since we’ve posted a “newsreel,” but with so many stories it’s hard to keep up! Here are a few worth noting:

Metromode has a short article on the renovations at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, along with two photographs.

The Los Angeles Times reports on the state of the Vision Theatre (formerly the Leimert Theatre) and the financial troubles besetting the neighborhood.

The Billings Gazette is reporting that the Judith Theatre in Lewistown, MT will reopen next month. New photos can be seen here.

Cinema Treasures has just added a huge number of Moroccan theaters, thanks to Ken Roe. These are definitely worth a look. Thanks to our editors and all of our contributors, we’ve added over 60 theaters in the last 24 hours.

Big Screen Classics continue at the Lafayette in Suffern, NY this weekend with After the Thin Man.

“Enter Stage Right: A Behind the Scenes Tour of Broadway’s Historic Theaters,” will take place on Sunday, September 30. According to New York City’s Historic District Council, this is a “rare behind-the-scenes tour of Manhattan’s Theater District. The tour, put together by noted tour guide Joseph Rosenberg of VIP Tours New York, preservation architect Craig Morrison and restoration specialist Jeffrey Greene, will go inside some of Broadway’s most infamous theaters. Walk the stages graced for decades by the theatrical elite, relish the extravagant designs of stately lobbies, discover firsthand what goes on behind the curtains!” Tour prices are $45 and $35 for Friends of HDC. Advance reservations are required. For more information, visit their website.

There are also silent films at the Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo, CA, a lineup of cult classics and contemporary films at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago, and movies playing across the nation. So get out there and support your local movie house!
