Would you be interested in any theaters in NY’s 5 boroughs? I am a historic preservationist, who has brokered deals, resulting in the sparing and adaptive reuse of endangered sites. I might be able to assist you. I look forward to hearing some of your ideas. Please e-mail me at Thank you! – Michael Perlman

Try San Francisco… there are several “butes” in good shape and just begging to be reopened!

I own The Ritz Theatre in Malvern, AR and it is for sale right now. It is a downtown twin with room for a third screen in the old balcony. It was originally a single, but UA split it into three screens in the 80’s. We remodeled in 2004. and are doing a great business, but my wife and I are ready to get into something else, as she has been there 26 yrs. and I have been there 20. Malvern is a small town 50 miles sw of Little Rock, AR. If you are interested, please contact me and I can put you in contact with the listing agent.
Thank you,
Marty Nix

Everyone can thank the pure remodeling genius of classic theater designer and historian JOSEPH MUSIL, Creator of Santa Ana’s fabulous “American Museum of Theatrical Design, located in the Santora Arts Building.
Also take a look at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood -WOW!

The Crest is nothing else than an art deco sight to be seen and enjoyed while watching a perfectly presented picture. Also the lobby is totally scrumptuous along with a million-lighted marquee.
