I’ve spent a very pleasant half hour browsing the rich Cinema Treasures website. They claim listings for over 13,000 theatres around the world. Some of my favourites:
- Capitol Theatre in Port Hope, Ontario. I visited Rod Stewart of Furby House Books in Port Hope in the last 1980s when there was a gleam in his eye about restoring the theatre; the effort has since been taken over by a foundation, and the theatre is in business.
- Clappison Drive-In in Waterdown, Ontario — the drive-in theatre of my youth.
- Highlands Cinemas in Kinmount, Ontario — the most amazing cinema you will ever visit.
- Elgin Theatre in Ottawa, Ontario — I saw War Games there the summer I worked as a summer camp counsellor.
