It is just my opinion, but do one-time showings of films in a recreational park really qualify the venue as a cinema or a theater? Many cities do this in some of their parks every summer, and I doubt if anyone would think of posting these sites here on CT.

Yes, I agree.
Though I do appreciate Raymond’s effort, it would be a much more fruitful contribution to work on “real” cinemas.
