How to get the best Google street view
One of the most exciting features of our new website is that we have integrated Google street views directly into our theater pages. So, for the first time, you can really see a movie theater in its real environment, even when we don’t have any photos.
Even better, we’ve added support for customizing and saving the position and orientation of the street view. So, if you come across a street view that isn’t looking directly at a theater, you can virtually move the camera to the correct location and save the view for other users.
The response so far has been amazing. In just two weeks, you guys have already customized over 5,000 street views. Wow!
Since there’s so much interest in this feature, we’ve put together a page with a few tips on how to get the best street view. Definitely worth a read if you’re using this feature.
If I want to re-do a Street View according to your guidelines, how do I get back the button for doing this?
@RonNewman For now, just email if you need us to reset a street view.
I can’t get the street view to go into the town of Connell, Washington to get a view of the Sunset Theater. Did Google not cover this town?
@KenLayton Yeah, it looks like Google hasn’t gone to Connell yet. There are street views of nearby highways, but nothing available in the town itself.
@Tinseltoes Yes, please email if you see a street view that is incorrectly set and we’ll reset it.
Just a friendly reminder that I’d like to help out with fixing the wrong locations of various Boston theatres (and that will make the StreetViews much easier to fix, too)
“200 Motels” haven’t seen that on a marquee since I put it up once.Have the One-sheet.
Thanks Ron! Please be in touch with Ken Roe about updating street locations. We hope to have the capability to allow users to edit addresses soon.
On some theatre pages there is no street view photo at all. Yet many of these theatres are on major roads where there are views of other theatres within the same area. Did Google not map entire major roads? Would love to have a fix for this.
