‘Urgent’ Cinema Photography Exhibit

posted by cyclonebob on August 23, 2004 at 4:58 am

HOLLYWOOD, CA — Photographer Bob Bayles has 29 of his classic black & white movie theatre prints on display in the main lobby of the ArcLight Cinemas at the famed Cinerama Dome on Sunset Blvd near Vine. The exhibit highlights the timeless beauty of the older movie houses and small town community theatres that may evoke personal memories as well as paying tribute to an era never to be forgotten.

Though many of the photographs are from the Hollywood area, including the Cinerama Dome itself, theatres from Chicago and San Francisco, among others, are also included. In addition, each photograph is paired with a film related quotation. If you love the movies, treat yourself to the experience of this exhibit.

Visit Bob’s website at cinemaphotogallery.com for more photos and information.

Great set of photos, Bob. The shot of the Hollywood Galaxy brought to mind another former General Cinemas/AMC L.A. site, one which shut its doors just within the last 7-10 days – the six-screen Beverly Connection. Once one of the more popular places to catch a flick in L.A. proper – I remember seeing ‘Flirting With Disaster’ and ‘Girl 6’ there with packed, enthusiastic crowds in March of 1996 – the Beverly Connection began to suffer when the all-stadium seating Pacific Theatres at The Grove opened for business in 2002, much as did the multiplex at the Hollywood Galaxy (another theatre which used to do bang-up business) when the ArcLight Cinemas at the Cinerama Dome opened in March of 2002.
