Very pleased that a Philadelphia area cinema, the County (not the “Old County”) in Doylestown, PA is included!

They don’t give any clue whatsoever as to what criteria they used to compile their list.

I agree with the above posts, what criteria did they use to make their choices? I don’t think they’ve checked out all the theatres that were restored in the U.S.
Also, why aren’t interior photos of the theatres shown.

I didn’t see that the article said they were the 10 most beautiful. It just says they have pictures of 10 beautiful old theaters.

Obviously they didn’t go to every theatre in the US. If they did they would have included the beautifully restored Orpheum in Los Angeles.

How I wish there was a Boston-area theatre on this list!

Let’s mention a Boston area theater! Coolidge Corner is beautiful & is still a daily moviehouse.
