I’ve been there. It is probably one of the most rewarding visits I’ve ever made to a museum. Keith loves cinema and film. I’ve traveled around the world and have never found anything like it. The lobby displays are very unusual, not just projection machinery but astonishing poster and lobby card displays, and other memorabilia. The theaters are remnants of theaters long gone, beautiful arc deco, neuveau styles that decorated the now deceased great movie palaces across Canada and the United States. Do yourself a grand favor. Go early, see a film, and stay late. The community is very small, very quaint. You’ll find yourself spending hours in the theaters and lobby.
