Cinema Treasures relaunches with new design, photo galleries, and more!
We are enormously excited to bring you the new Cinema Treasures website.
The new site features a brand new logo, revamped site design, upgraded theater browsing and searching (with Google maps, street views, and neighborhoods), photo galleries, and videos.
For starters, we’ve completely redesigned our theater guide. Browsing theaters has never been easier (or more fun). Our theater pages now have integrated Google maps, so for the first time you can see where theaters are located and whether they are open or closed. Open theaters have green map markers and closed theaters have red markers. Even better, you can quickly see how many theaters in a given area are renovating, restoring, demolished, etc.
Cinema Treasures has already become the world’s most comprehensive website dedicated to movie theaters with over 31,000 theaters from over 180 countries. With our new photo galleries, we also hope to build the world’s largest and most detailed theater photo archive.
Adding photos is easy and highly addictive. Find a theater, click on the photos tab, and then upload your images. Once you’ve begun adding photos to the site, you can share the link to all of your photos with friends. You can also “favorite” theaters and photos to bump up their rankings on Cinema Treasures.
We’ve also added Google street views for thousands of theaters, so even if we don’t have a current photo of a movie theater, you can see what it looks like. Even better, if the default street view isn’t pointing in the right direction, you can rotate the view until you find the best view of the theater and then save the changes.
With our new video section, you can also now find policy trailers, theater advertisements, documentaries, and other material from YouTube and Vimeo and upload new videos through the site.
Finally, Cinema Treasures has also created a new YouTube Channel, a dedicated Facebook page, and, most actively, a Twitter feed that is updated throughout the day with news about moviegoing and movie theaters. We’ve also redesigned and refocused our blog to provide more useful and current information about movie theaters, the exhibition industry, and the moviegoing experience.
We’re excited to bring all of this to you just in time for the summer movie season. So get out of the house, go to the movies, and take some photos while you’re there!
Next week, we’ll be taking some time to highlight all of the new features. But for now, enjoy kicking the tires! :)
