World’s Coolest Movie Theatres!

With a quote from THS member and Cinema Treasurers Author/Founder ROSS MELNICK, we take a look at the World’s Coolest Movie Theaters!  Take a peek at the one that they author terms “enderingly rickety” (sounds like a Conclave Destination for sure!) and the NYC theater with actual car seats.

Of course the 6 theaters listed in this article are purely subjective.  So let’s get the conversation going!  Have you been to any of these theaters?  And of course, WHAT IS YOUR NOMINEE for WORLD’S COOLEST MOVIE THEATER?


  1. Without a doubt, one of the Coolest Theaters in America has to be the Commodore Theatre in Portsmouth VA! A Art Deco from John A. Zinc is a stylistic masterpiece (like the Senator in Baltimore used to be) that respectfully maintains the original flavor and decor while pairing it with a very servicable dining experience. Well worth a trip if you’re anywhere in the area!
