Amateur photographer and professional stagehand, Noah Kern, has started a site with dozens of recent color photos of movie palaces and others where he has traveled with the tour company of "Greese." I know you will like it, and you can leave comments if you like. http://www.pbase.com/affablebeef/theatres ENJOY!

Very nice pictures!
I've been to a few theatres like those (including the Wang in Boston which is shown), but only for concerts or shows, never a movie.
Many of these venues I think would be pretty bad for seeing a movie though (or at least if you aren't sitting close to the front); it's tough to really appreciate just how big these rooms are from the photos!

Very occasionally, the Wang shows old films on Monday nights. This winter and spring, they showed A Streetcar Named Desire, Shakespeare in Love, Dirty Dancing, and Guys and Dolls.
I wish they'd do this much more often, like the Ohio Theatre does in Columbus.
