No Vegas winnings. We left our hotel rooms each morning at 7am and came back around midnight. As for Add-a-photo, it is coming back soon … really.
This is not only a great book to own, but an important effort and organization to support. And, I must say, the discount is really a nice bonus.
If it was sent Media Mail, we are all at the mercy of the USPS.
Thank you “danpetitpas.” The URL you mentioned has been removed.
These theaters, although operated by Loew’s International, were given the “Metro” name, rather than “Loew’s,” to more closely align them with the company’s longtime producing unit, Metro-Goldwyn(-Mayer), part of Loew’s, Inc. from 1924 to 1959. Metro Theatres/Cine Metros could, at one time, be found in South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Other theaters, like the Empire in London, were also operated by Loew’s.
Comments have now been reopened for this page. Let’s keep it civil please. :)

This is not a forum about Warren. This is about the AMC Empire 25. I appreciate your comment MarkieS, but it is off topic on this page. Please feel free to email me with any additional concerns.
Thanks and I do appreciate all of your passionate interest in the site and these theaters. These interpersonal issues are always the hardest part.
Does every disagreement have to get personal?
Warren, what is the need for “Are you now dictating rules? When did you become part of management?”
Lost Memory has a perfect reasonable explanation for the source of the address (which Google Maps confirms).

As Karen mentioned above, we were asked to choose theaters that were not typically selected for such lists.
This discussion has been very helpful, though, and I look forward to submitting the AFI Silver and the Loew’s Jersey for the next round.
Over the years, we’ve done a number of “top ten” lists, but always with the disclaimer that they are not, in fact, the top ten theaters in America. Who could or should make such a list? I have my favorites, of course, but sometimes it is about showcasing a theater in need, highlighting technological or programmatic change, or, in some cases like Spirit Magazine, focusing on theaters in cities where Southwest Airlines flies.
If anything, these lists are good for making us think about our favorite theaters and our desire to lobby for their preservation and their use.
They definitely advertise their 4K capability.
As those of you who have visited this page over the last few days will notice, I have deleted a number of off-topic and/or antagonistic emails.
The next attack wins a free suspension! :)
Warren, I agree with you. I will try and verify the name and get back to you.
Hi Warren — I certainly did not intend to reopen this debate. As previously discussed, please note their URL (http://www.theunitedpalace.com/home.htm) and the name throughout their website: “The United Palace.” I agree with you that it seems strange, but we use the names that theaters/venues provide.
There was a long debate about this some months ago. We used the name the theater/church goes by — not the one Ticketmaster has.
Thanks Karen. And, as a member of THSA, I strongly encourage anyone with a love of classic movie theaters to join as well.
As for the Star Wars debates, it’s always good to have accurate information. The important thing, though, is for everyone to handle one another with care.
While I know our comments sections produce a number of squabbles, without them, we’d be little more than a database. Your comments create and reflect the community.
The interior of the jewelry store (Alberts Diamondland) does not reveal much (or anything really) of the original interior. The street view from Google Maps gives a sense of how the light bulbs might have looked.
Thanks to Lost Memory for the Ben’s Chili Bowl link above. Here is a photo on their website of the Minnehaha Theater.
A news item related to a theater does not make it a “crime related website.”
Thank you all for your comments regarding the issue of Flickr and photo credits. While useful, the discussion is off-topic and was threatening to take the page off the rails.
I am happy to reconsider the removal of these posts if you think the discussion will resolve similar debates.
No need for the conspiracy theories. Someone who posted a comment requested that it be removed. Through a miscommunication, the entire post was removed, rather than just the comment. I have removed the requested comment and restored the post.
The Senator never called or requested anything be removed or changed.
When these issues arise, it is always best to wait and see what the resolution is. There isn’t always a conspiracy, a cover up, or a gremlin afoot.
“Cinema Treasures”? Never heard of it. :)
Thanks for setting the record straight, Joe!
Thanks so much for your understanding. I wish I had been able to deal with it earlier.
I also want to reiterate that Ken, Bryan, and Michael do herculean work here. If you have any time before the holidays, I’m sure they’d love to hear from you. Patrick and I couldn’t be luckier to have them.
And the same goes for our users. Some of the most plugged in, knowledgeable, and skilled exhibitors and projectionists post their comments on this site. You are not only contributing to the dialogue today, but to future historians and exhibitors who are able to learn from all of you. I try and keep that in mind whenever possible.
Thanks again for everything,
