And thank you for setting up and maintaining this wonderful website!

While my main interest is in the theaters of the New York City metropolitan area (and I’ve learned a lot of new info about them on this site), it’s also amazing to see how many wonderful theaters there are across the entire USA and around the world. (Internationally, I’m thinking of the Australian and UK theaters that I’ve seen on the site.)

Along similar lines, one of my favorite pictures in the book, “Cinema Treasures,” (which I saw yesterday in a bookstore) is the one that shows the main theater street of Denver, Colorado in the 1920s(?). This is what I imagine 42nd St. in New York City looked like in its heyday (if it actually ever looked quite this good). (I wonder what this Denver street looks like today, and if it ever experienced a decline similar to that of 42nd St.? Also, it would be interesting to see what the main theater streets of other cities — Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, etc. — looked like in their heydays also.)

Supposedly no two snowflakes are exactly alike. While the same thing might not be quite as true for theaters, it is amazing nevertheless to see just how many different ways people have come up with of designing wonderful places for people to watch movies!

Why not have some type of special recognition for the lucky person that posts #10,000?

Don Lewis: Great idea! I have gone to other cinema sites and don’t like the format as well as here on CT.
