What is Cinema Treasures?

We’re passionate about movie theaters and going to the movies. Since 2000, Cinema Treasures has united movie theaters and patrons to build the world’s most comprehensive guide to movie theaters, and help celebrate and preserve the moviegoing experience.

In 2011, we relaunched our website with a new design, upgraded blog, enhanced theater listings (with Google Maps support), photo galleries, videos, and social media integration.
