It has been announced that, starting Feb. 1st, 2013, there will be a name change to Big Picture Cinemas. The new website URL is http://www.bigpicturecinema.com/

The two locations will be known as Big Picture Gerrard (the address noted above) and Big Picture Metro, the old Metro Theatre. Not clear yet whether there will be another attempt to introduce mainstream programming into the Metro, whose Cinema Treasures listing is here: http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/896
