    Adding Photographs / Copyright Reminder


    Over the last six weeks our photo galleries have grown from nil to nearly 12,000 images. We’re absolutely thrilled by the response and we hope you’re enjoying them as much as we are. But …

    We wanted to send a quick reminder, though, that all images uploaded to the site should be those belonging to you, images taken by others but posted with their authorization, or those images currently in the public domain (ideally pre-1922 photographs out of copyright).

    Thanks for your understanding!

    Cinema Treasures Adds 10,000 Photographs!


    To say we’re shocked, amazed, or blown away is an understatement. Just over one month after relaunching the site, Cinema Treasures users have added over 10,000 photographs. Thank you all for documenting these theaters and for sharing them with the world. Every photograph added to the site helps future architects, restoration experts, and historians. Plus, they’re also completely addictive.

    Happy Independence Day!


    Just wanted to wish all of our US users a Happy Independence Day! After you’re done grilling meat in the scorching heat, cool off by patronizing your local movie theater. Air conditioning, entertainment, and a cold drink is the right way to celebrate your freedom (from work!).

    Happy July 4th to our CT users around the world!

    (Thanks to Camera Slayer for the terrific image.)

    July 4th Cinema Treasures Photo Challenge!


    Since relaunching one month ago, Cinema Treasures users have added over 8,000 photos to the site. We’re absolutely blown away by the response and completely addicted to viewing all of the images coming in every hour.

    Despite the breadth and depth of the images on the site, some pivotal theaters are still in need of one or more photographs. If you’re traveling this weekend, we’d love your help in documenting drive-ins, single screens, and megaplexes wherever you are.

    Have a great July 4th and look for all of the new photographs next week when our traveling users return home!
