Ten Amazing Theatres Across America

Here’s a list of some  favorites via a link from Dennis Wilhelm.  Note that the Kimball pipe organ in the Oriental, Milwaukee is NOT original to the building. Its from the Warner, Milwaukee.  The Oriental’s original Barton theatre pipe organ is now in Beggars Pizza,  the ex-Lans Theatre in Lansing Illinois where it is played on Tuesdays and Fridays by Glenn Tallar.  

“While we can’t dispute the merit of megaplexes across the country, there are some theaters that are restoring the Silver Screen to its former glory days. Below is our list of ten amazing theaters in America that make watching films memorable again .  .  .”
