So you like to look at the ceiling until the show starts?  And you're still looking at it during the show?  Maybe you climbed every staircase and sat on every level just to see what the place looked like from every vantage point.  Did you walk in wondering whether a Wurlitzer was going to rise up out of the floor?  Did you pause in awe when you first walked through the door?  Did it all feel great and familiar?


You love old theaters.  You're in the right place, and you're not alone.  Maybe you love them for the decades of history they have seen and have been a part of.  Maybe you love them because they were designed to transport you, and that's exactly what they do.  Or maybe you're comforted by the way they feel just like the theater in your home town that you spent years making memories in - that is now a parking lot. 

 

This site exists to help you find the theaters available for you to love, the ones that need you because their future is one roof leak away from their end, and the resources to help you learn about these treasures that other generations took for granted.


This site is a work in progress.  Fortunately "progress" in this case does not mean demolition.
