Happy New Year!
It’s hard to believe, but Cinema Treasures is now more than a decade old. The organization was founded in October 1999 and we launched this website in December 2000. (We look forward to celebrating the site’s ten year anniversary later this year.)
As a new decade begins, there is, as there was in 2000, great excitement and great concern about the future of theatrical exhibition. The Wrap just reported that domestic box office will reach $10.6 billion for 2009. Of course, those numbers only tell half the story. We wish the world’s ushers, projectionists, managers, bookers, operators, and owners the very best in the coming years. For those currently working to save and/or operate classic theaters around the world, we tip our New Year’s hats to you.
Thank you to all of our loyal users and contributors who have made the last decade possible. All of us at Cinema Treasures wish you a very Happy New Year and our warmest gratitude.
Ross, Patrick, Ken, and Michael
