Well, my list probably shorter than most everyone here, but I have seen films at:

Fresno, Ca:
Festival 6 (closed)
Manchester Mall (closed)
UA Northgate (closed)
Edwards 21
Signature 16
Sunnyside Drive-In (closed)

Clovis, Ca:
UA Towne Center
UA Sierra Vista Mall
Regency 6 (closed)

Merced, Ca:
College Green (Closed, lobby area is now a hobby store, theaters are now a Save Mart grocery store. The Marquee is still there, used for the shopping center.)
Movies 3 (closed)

Chickasha, OK
Southland Twin (This was my first moviegoing experience, I was 4. Wish I could remember what film I saw!)

Ocoee, FL
AMC West Oaks 14

Orlando, FL:
Ri-Mar Drive-In (demolished)
Multiplex whose name I forgot...

It would've been on Edgewater Drive, but there isn't a cinema listed on that street. When I go back to those parts I'll have to drive past and see if it even exists anymore. It was located on one side of the Northgate Center, a strip mall that had been converted into a swap meet by simply ripping off the storefronts. The theater was the only thing open in the whole area, the rest of the "building" was abandoned and vandalized. (I can't imagine that helped the theater's business, the place gave me the creeps when we were leaving.)

Some of the historic and not so historic theatres I have been in

The old Crown in Collisville Ok. It might be open might not. It has not done well since they opened the 10 screen in owasso.

The Orpheum in Okmulgee, Oklahoma Still showing movies every night opened in 1919. Was twined in the 1970's. It's being restored as funds permit.

The demolished annex 7 in Tulsa. Saw Home Alone 2 here when I was 11. No adults were around. although there were a lot of kids in the theatre. spent a happy 90 minutes jumping on the seats and throwing popcorn at each other.

The Fox Four in Tulsa. This used to have a deep curved screen. It was built back in the 1960's Twined and then quaded. It was recently gutted and turned into a discount clothing store. The scraped all the seats into a pile with a bulldozer. did'nt even unbolt them first.

Wow, how do you remember exactly which theatres you've been in. here's my list, the Connecticut section will be complete, but I've seen movies in many other states when I was on vacations and those are far from complete.

A * next to it means I've actually seen a movie there. No * means I've been in it but never seen a movie there.

Avon Twin Theatre (Avon) * saw my first ever movie here, The Fox And The Hound, when I was 5 years old (demolished)
Bantam Cinema (Bantam) *
Berlin Cine 1 & 2 (Berlin) * (closed)
Showcase Cinemas (Berlin) *
Bloomfield Cinemas (Bloomfield) *
Forestville Theatres (Bristol) *
Showcase Cinemas (East Hartford) *
Showcase Cinemas (East Windsor) *
Cine Enfield 8 (Enfield) * (closed)
Movies at Westfarms Mall (Farmington) * (closed)
Groton 6 Cinemas (Groton) *
Art Cinema (Hartford) * very briefly viewed the prono flick when I was there to take photos fior CinemaTour - an extreme close-up of a guy's part ramming in and out of the girl's part.
Cinema City (Hartford) *
Cinestudio (Hartford) *
Crown Palace 17 (Hartford) *
Real Art Ways (Hartford) *
Wadsworth Atheneum (Hartford) *
Webster Theatre (Hartford) * (live)
Manchester 6 Theatres (Manchester) * (closed)
Showcase Cinemas (Manchester) *
Foxwoods Cinetropolis Iwerks Theater (Mashantucket) * this doesn't really show regular movies but 10 minute thrill-ride films and the seat moves to simuylate you being in them
Meriden 10 Cinemas (Meriden) *
Newington Cinema I-II-III (Newington) * (demolished)
Newington Theatre (Newington) * (demolished)
Edmond Town Hall Theatre (Newtown)
Niantic Cinemas (Niantic) *
Loews Plainville Theatre (Plainville) *
Eno Memorial Hall (Simsbury) (live)
Simsbury Commons 8 (Simsbury) *
Showcase Cinemas (Southington) *
Thomaston Opera House (Thomaston) (live)
Cinerom (Torrington) *
Crown Marquee 16 (Trumbull)
Vernon Cine 1 & 2 (Vernon) * (closed)
Brass Mill Center 12 (Waterbury) *
Mallview 10 Cinemas (Waterbury) * this is my favorite place to see a movie., It is so comfortable and pleasant there.
Palace Theatre (Waterbury) (snuck into, closed/renovating)
Waterford Cinema 9 (Waterford) *
Country Cinema (Watertown) *
Elm Theatre (West Hartford) * (closed) this was the only cinema in the town I grew up in. i was so sad when it closed last year.
Forest Theatre (West Haven)
Paris Cinema 1 & 2 (Wethersfield) * (closed)
Plaza Theatre (Windsor) * (closed - but hopefully not permanently)
Gilson Cafe & Cinema (Winsted) * the only CT cinema with dining

There's no way I could list all the out-of-state cinemas I've been in as quite simply I don't remember. I know I've been in ones all over the country, though, on vacations as a kid. Some that stick out in my mind from other states are:

Fox Theatre in Atlanta, which is now a live theatre.

Fox Theatre somewhere in Montana which was still showing movies when I was there about 12-14 years ago. It had a balcony and I LOVE balconies. I forget what town it was in.

UA Cinemas (in or around Phoenix, AZ). This is memorable because the first few rows of seats, instead of being on a downward incline where on an upward slope so patrons did not have to crane their necks to view the screen.

Flicker Shack (Sedona, AZ). i see this is closed now. It was a great little 2-screen local operation where the manager made a speech before the show saying that people had been throwing candy at their brand new screen and that if anyone did that she would call their parents.

Maple Drive-In (Honesdale, PA). this is the only drive-in I have ever seen a movie at. I saw "Independence Day" there on my night off from the local camp I was working at in 1996.

I don't even know if I could do THAT.

I think I'll do a list of the theatres I've been to in the Bay Area of California... or... erm... maybe just there. I'll start with my house NORTH.

Washington Square Cinema 5 - Delteted
Pacific's Petaluma Cinema 8 - CLOSED
Phoenix Theatre - (currently live venue, but I saw movies there)
Mystic Theatre (LIVE)
SonoMarin Drive-In (though technically SOUTH of my house)
Parkway Drive-In

UA Empire Cinema 4 - (now a veterinary clinic)
Pacific's Rohnert Park All-Stadium 16!

Sepastopol Cinema 9

Sonoma Cinema 6
Sebastiani Theatre

Uptown Theatre
Cinedome 8

Roxy Stadium 14
"Roxy on the Square" formery UA Cinema 6
UA Movies 5 (now a church)
UA Coddington 4 (now Beverly's Crafts)

Airport Cinema 8

"The Raven"

Clover Cinema 4

Signature's Ukiah 6

Lakeport Cinema 5

Clearlake Twin

Noyo Theatre 3

Coast Cinemas

Fortuna Theatre

Broadway 8
Movies 6
Eureka Theatre

And MANY MANY MORE North of me -- but I won't bore everybody.
The list goes on and on.

The best theatre I think I've ever been to, is the Fremont in San Luis Obispo, CA. I recommend if everybody ever drives 101 through San Luis Obispo, SEE THE FREMONT AT NIGHT. And get inside if you can too.

Bill, I don't know if you've seen the advertisements for the Jimmy Kimmel show, but the theater marquee that use in those is from the Los Angeles theater. The first time it's used in the promo, the middle is cut out so it says "LOLES", but at the end of the promo you can just barely see the bottom of the letters spelling "LOS ANGELES".

In addition, I've been to the 5-screen in Osage Beach, MO at the outlet mall, three theaters in St. Louis (the Clarkson 6, Landmark's Tivoli 3, and a 14-screener run by Wehrenberg) a theater in Houston (one of the giant Edwards, not the one at the mall) and a theater in Colorado Springs.

I'm sure I've been to more than these, of course, but these are all the ones I can think of.
