Cinema Treasures and THS Announce New Strategic Partnership

It is with great excitement that Cinema Treasures (CT) and the Theatre Historical Society of America (THS) announce a new strategic partnership effective today. Janine Pixley, Development & Marketing Director for THS, will begin contributing daily to the Cinema Treasures blog in our collective effort to introduce CT users to THS and THS members to CT.

All of us at Cinema Treasures are thrilled to be working with Janine, Executive Director Richard Fosbrink, and other members of the THS staff. “It’s going to be a great opportunity to connect movie theatre news and notes from around the globe to a group of people who are hungry for it,” Pixley notes. “We’re very excited about this new partnership with Cinema Treasures and can’t wait to introduce the Theatre Historical Society of America to this community as a whole.”

Cinema Treasures was founded in 1999 and inspired by two books: Great American Movie Theaters by David Naylor (1987) and Best Remaining Seats by Ben Hall (1962). Hall was not only the author of a foundational work on film exhibition history but he was also the co-founder of the incomparable Theatre Historical Society of America. Since its founding in 1969, THS has documented and celebrated the architectural, cultural and social history of America’s theaters. Through its preservation of the collections in the American Theatre Architecture Archive, its signature publication Marquee™ and it many events including Conclave Theatre Tour, THS increases awareness, appreciation and scholarly study of America’s theatres.

As an inspiration for our own site, it’s an honor to be working with THS today.

The blog, of course, is in excellent hands. Like all of us, Janine isn’t just an important player at THS, she’s also a movie theater fan: “My earliest memory seeing a movie (which will probably date me) is sneaking into the balcony during Terminator 2 at Edmund Town Hall in Connecticut. You had to have a parent with you if you were under 17, but there’s nothing like watching a movie in a balcony — except when you "accidentally” drop popcorn to the main floor."

Today’s announcement provides us with one more opportunity to thank our longtime blog editor Michael Zoldessy for his years of heroic service. Our delay in rebooting the blog was to make sure that its next iteration lived up to Michael’s standards and pushed us further in a new direction. With today’s announcement, we have accomplished both and we’re thrilled to be working with Janine and THS.
