Please, folks, let’s slowdown on listings of cinemas in remote portions of the world and beyond. If you can’t find anything more to say about a theatre than than it’s listed in the local yellow pages directory, it’s probably not worth being honored as a “Cinema Treasure.”

Warren, This is an internet site which covers the entire world. Ok, there may not be much information on theatres like this to start with, but that is what Cinema Treasures is all about. Hopefully someone local to the area, or a visitor/tourist will now have the opportunity to input some more details.

I can think of many American theatres on this site, some in major cities, that have absolutely no description or details about the buildings, but slowly these details eventually emerge.

Sorry, Ken, but I don’t agree with you that listing every cinema that ever existed is “what Cinema Treasures is all about.” I thought it was intended to be an extension of the book, “Cinema Treasures,” which is sub-titled “A New Look at Classic Movie Theaters” and covers only sites in the United States. I can understand extending the borders to other countries, but I think that those contributions should be made by their residents, and not by “foreigners” thumbing through telephone directories. Perhaps the CT management should make a policy statement clarifying the matter. There’s a rival and longer established website operating from Europe that seems to have taken on the entire world. Do we need another one?

Is there another website which allows people to comment on theaters?

Personally, I prefer this website to be international. I consult it before I travel.

I agree that listings need have more content, but Ken is correct in that content is often filled in after the theater is entered. Many people won’t take the step of “adding” a theater but they will comment once it is added.

So, ease up, Warren, especially since Ken is a volunteer, and there’s no membership fees so you shouldn’t object to the “product”

I rather agree with Ken, knowing of a cinema may help to unearth more information and photographs of cinemas whose history is unrecorded. Of course it would be better if we had all the information in the beginning.

Theaters outside of the US are welcome on this website. While the book largely focused on operating movie theaters in America, the website is international scope.

Warren, we’d love to have native residents flesh out our international listings, but it’s perfectly okay for Americans (or Brits) to do so, as well. And, btw, our website is several years older than our book…. you should know that! :)

We hope to publicly clarify our editing policy in the near future, so there’s less confusion about what is and is not a Cinema Treasure.

Thanks for your comments, everyone! (And to Warren for sparking this discussion.)

Patrick, when you publicly clarify the editing policy, you should also correct the blurbs for the book, “Cinema Treasures.” Due to publication in 2004, it no longer qualifies as a “new” book. I suggest a change to “recent,” or to some adjective that will withstand the passing of time, such as “acclaimed” or “definitive” or “monumental.”

Is this theater operating? Another? Current movies and coming attractions? Quality of sound and picture? Because Siem Reap has few screens, why not share the best on DVD from member perspectives?

In 2007 some posted a comment on Cinema Treasures. Is this now a dead website re. Cambodia? Yesterday I posted the following: … Is this theater operating? Another? Current movies and coming attractions? Quality of sound and picture? Because Siem Reap has few screens, why not share the best on DVD from member perspectives? A site worth reviving?
