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!

It's great, but he needs to know that Boston is in Massachusetts and not Maryland!

Haha. We'll hope for his sake and the sake of the public school system that the MD was a typo. Lol.

Awesome pictures, though. I've never been in any theater as grand as those.

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.
