You can send them in to Adam at newsroom@cinematour.com - I see you are in Massachusetts which is nearby me. What cinemas did you photograph?

Phil, it's nice to see you posting here. I read recently that the
Westgate Cinema no longer exists. I was wondering if you had any color shots of the lobby taken back in the 1970's? If you post something here, I'll follow with some of my photos of Braintree and Framingham.

Do you have any from when those were still GCC theatres? I took a few photos when I first heard AMC was buying the chain, and now I haven't a clue as to where they've disappeared to...

You don't know where your pictures are, or you don't know where GCC went? (sorry, couldn't help but try to make a joke.)
I'm hoping Phil will upload some photos to this site.
My pictures are from years ago. You can see some of them by going to my web site, listed on the bottom of this message.

Here's a color picture of lower Washington St in Boston showing the Paramount upright and marquee.

Many of the photos are from my collection of CinemaScene Magazines a General Cinema employee publication.

Hi Dave, I do have some photos of the Westgate Lobby and from South American which I took during my last theatre tour. I will begin scanning and send them in.

I wish I had saved issues of Cinemascene. Here's a small picture of the Framingham Lobby.

GCC had a publication? I'd love to see a few of those, you should scan some and make a PDF out of them and see if Adam will post them online.

Or, if you're interested, I could scan them all for you and return them along with a CD-ROM of the pdf files. Email me privately if you're interested.

I wish I'd kept all of my circuit newsletters. [Frown] The stuff you have to throw away when you move a million times.

I will scan a few of the more interesting covers and send them along.

A bit of both actually! General Cinema theatres always seem to be pretty busy, so I was surprised when I first heard they had financial trouble. I didn't have a digital camera at the time, so the pictures I took were on film and got misplaced at some point in time.

GCC was always busy in New England. Maybe one of the problems was that there were theatres built in areas already over-screened, and poor leases made the new megaplexes less profitable.
I notice you're from Waltham, and wonder if you were a patron of the Waltham Cinema I&II which used to be located on Winter St.?
What theatres did you attend in your area?
