posted by Ross Melnick on June 26, 2009 at 8:15 am

Cinema Treasures passed the 25,000-theater mark this past week as our database of theaters keeps growing at a blistering pace.

Thank you to all of the thousands of contributors who have made Cinema Treasures a destination site for movie theater exhibitors and patrons, journalists, and researchers.

Finally, a special thank you to Bryan Krefft and our theater editor extraordinaire, Ken Roe, whose tireless dedication and expertise are the reason Cinema Treasures is what it is today.

Thank you again and see you at 30,000. :)

Co-founders, Cinema Treasures

Congratulations! Definitely one of the most valuable web sites.

And I must echo those who say PLEASE do something about the picture library. We’re having to rely on people providing them off-site, and so many of those links become obsolete in time.

Thanks, and keep up the incredible work!

i have a good friend and we thought no one in the world would give a flip about exploring old theatres when we could slip in an old rotten exit door. Stomp in high grass watching for snakes at old drive in sites. When he told me about CT i just could not believe it.
I spent about 7 years in the Business before it went to pot. Even today i find it hard to believe there are other old theatre dawgs like Nick and myself. I always try to add truthful insight to any site i visit on CT. HAPPY HOLIDAYS GANG.
