We’re continuing to update the site and have just launched a new Theaters page with even more content and browsing options. Enjoy!

I don’t like this! Makes the “Recent Comments” section even harder to find. In the former CT format, it was prominently displayed on the home page. Perhaps it could be swapped for “Newest Theaters.” I find that one of the least interesting sections since most of the additions are new plexes that have yet to prove that they qualify as “treasures.” They might be cinemas, but I don’t consider them theatres in the traditional sense of the word.

Hi Tinseltoes — Recent comments are actually higher up on the page now, though they are slightly smaller. While you and I (and other frequent users) may go for those first, we’re also trying to make the page friendlier for first time visitors. Many are looking for operating cinemas. We’re always reaching for that balance between celebrating older “treasures” and making the site a resource for moviegoers and theater owners.

Gee, what happened to all the thousands of great comments posted for many years on this site? They were a great source of information, entertainment and nostalgia for the many posters. Is that all gone now? The last time I posted something, about my neighborhood theater growing up in Brooklyn, NY, I made a point of saving the entire page, with all of the comments made by me and others over the years. I’m sure glad I did. Sorry, but if it ain’t broke, don’t break it.

@JoeG Nothing happened to all of our great comments. They are still there!

To see the comments for a theater, just click on the ‘Comments’ tab at the top of the theater page.

OK, sorry, but you used to have a very quick, alphabetical way of finding theaters by name. I could go to “C” and find all the Colonial Theaters, past and present, in America. Now, my old Colonial is not even listed, not even among the closed theaters. (It was converted to a church years ago.) And if I want to find a theater alphabetically, how am I supposed to wade through thousands of numbered pages, and know exactly where a theater starting with “L” falls? An alphabetical list would be much simpler. This redesign, like so many, seems aimed more at pleasing web designers than at user satisfaction.
