I'll be making a trip to Orlando to get some of Cinematour's very first photos of Florida.

I'll be there Feb 11-14th.

In the meantime I'm trying to arrange some tours, so if anybody out there knows a friendly theatre owner or manager, speak up!

421 photos from Scott's recent trip to Orlando and Tampa are now online.

Don't miss the Tampa Theatre tour.

Indeed, you shouldn't miss the Tampa Theatre tour; Scott is to be praised for the fine photos of this "Anadalusian Bon-bon" as the late Ben M. Hall forever christened it in his landmark book: "The Best Remaining Seats" in 1961. For those who forgot their geography, Andalusia is a district in Spain, and for those not a terrible 'sweet tooth' as I am, 'Bon-bons' are little balls of soft, sweet somethings coated in chocolate or another flavor of glaze, hard to find now, but a favorite of the 19th century! The term means "good, good" in French.

That photo of the double-headed drinking fountain is especially good, in that it records what may be a one-of-a-kind, with the two water heads apparently voiding down into an ornate bowl.
