We don’t remember a lot about our distant past, but we do remember out favorite movie theatre. “Preserve Me a Seat” is a documentary about these theatres and the ongoing fight to protect and preserve them for future generations. Featuring preservation efforts in Boston (The Gaiety Theatre), Detroit (The former Michigan Theatre), Chicago (The DuPage Theatre), Omaha, (The Indian Hills Cinerama Theatre), and Salt Lake City (The Villa Theatre), “Preserve Me a Seat” will appeal to anyone who has chrished memories of seeing their favorite movies in a grand theatre, and who appreciates the unique architecture of American movie theaters.
