Sites about movie theaters
All these sites are in English.
  • Memoirs of a projectionist A former projectionist visited many old Parisian movie theaters before they closed down. He brought back interviews and many photos.
  • Movie Theatres In Sweden In English and Swedish. Swedish site made by an enthusiast who photographed every single movie theater in his country, and who is writing a book about this; many pictures, beautiful presentation.
  • The Picture Palace English site about cinema palaces in Great Britain. Yesterday and today. Lots of stuff, many old and recent photos.
  • The Movie Palace Locator This American site makes an inventory of numerous web sites about cinema palaces in the United States..
  • Picture Theatres In Queensland, Australia This Australian site makes a full inventory of movie theaters in Queensland, Australia. Rather austere presentation, but huge database and many pictures.
  • Architectural Cleansing Subtitled "The eradication of the American Movie Theater", this American site is about cinema palaces in Houston, Texas and in California. Nostalgic (and somehow angry) tone, many photos and links.
  • London Cinemas The large and beautiful theaters in London. Only one page, and some pictures, but interesting.
  • SRAT's Movie Theaters Reviews This American site is very original. Readers are invited to send reviews of the theaters they attend. The author died recently, and his friends carry on his task.
  • The Drive-In Theater Huge and impressive database about cinema drive-ins in the United States; many pictures.
Flagstaff - Orpheum 1 Orpheum, Flagstaff, Arizona
The single screen theater offers about six hundred seats, but it is very long, and hte screen is only ten meters (35 ft) wide. Dolby SR sound only, but they told us digital sound was coming soon...

Sites about cinema
  • The Internet Movie Database In English. Huge exhaustive database of movies and people.

  • Gaumont In French. All Gaumont movie theaters are described, with the screens sizes!

  • U.G.C. In French. Schedules for U.G.C. movie theaters, but nothing about the theaters themselves.

  • MK2 "Work in Progress"; nothing yet.

  • Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre In the "Gone and missing" file, there is a picture of the Egyptian on Hollywood Boulevard. Good news, the place is being redone for the American Cinematheque, and the large auditorium will open again soon. The story of a resurrection.
  • Yahoo In English. Results for the "movie theaters" search are very impressive.

  • The DIGITAL Sound Page In English. Everything you need to know about digital sound and THX in movie theaters.

  • In English. Tempted by a trip to Luxembourg? The schedules are here.

    Promess kept!
