The Senator Theatre: One of the 10 Best Movie Theatres in America!

The “Human Spirit” issue (winter 2008/2009 edition) of  Moving Pictures magazine features an article written by J. Rentilly, with help from Ross Melnick of Cinema Treasures and Karen Colizzi Noonan, president of Theatre Historical Society of America.

The article points out that while you may have enjoyed movies in a venue that sported a state of the art screen and/or sound system:

“… it’s just as likely that you saw the film in a tiny box with a postage stamp-sized screen. Not every silver screen in America is golden, after all.”

But, apparently these folks know a “golden” theatre when they see it, as our own hometown Senator Theatre has been listed as one of the 10 Best Movie Theatres in America!

Read the whole article here.

Also, be sure to read Astrogirl’s interview with Karen Colizzi Noonan!

  1. This is only the latest in a long string of national accolades for the Senator. The Senator has been named one of the best movie theatres in America repeatedly over the years, in such publications as Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek, and USA Today. The Senator was also ranked as one of the best theatres for technical excellence by the Theatre Alignment Program (TAP), a rigorous technical measuring inspection program started by Lucasfilms.

    I’ve been researching an article about the Senator’s and Tom Kiefaber’s accomplishments. They are both widely recognized in the national arena. My research is incomplete, which is why I haven’t published it yet.

  2. By the way, thanks for finding this online. Last time I checked, the article was not online yet. I should update my interview article and add a link. I’ve been working off a hardcopy of the magazine.
