The Majestic Opera House opened in 1911. By 1914 it had been renamed Majestic Theatre. On December 31, 1915 the roof collapsed due to the weight of snow. It was rebuilt and reopened as the Orpheum Theatre and was renamed College Theatre in 1930. It was renamed Orpheum Theatre in 1933. By 1950 it was operated by the Harry L/ Nace Theatres chain. The Orpheum Theatre’s interior is decorated with velvet tapestries and Victorian ornamentation. The theatre is located next to the turn-of-the-century Weatherford Hotel, in downtown Flagstaff.

The Guild Art Theatre opened as an adult theatre on February 16, 1966, screening the Greek movie “Red Lanterns” starring Jenny Karezi. It was located in a building that had originally opened a few years earlier as a short-lived store. From 1971-77, the Guild Theatre was a revival theatre, but when the Guild’s owner acquired another art house nearby (the Don Pancho Theatre), the Guild Theatre was shuttered. The theatre was sold to new owners in 2004, who continue the Guild Theatre’s art house tradition. Today, the Guild Cinema is the only remaining independent art house in the Albuquerque area.

POST FILM PANEL WITH KEN BUSBY (SHERIFF OF PIXAR’S CARS), AUTHOR MICHAEL WALLIS (WRITER OF ‘ROUTE 66, THE MOTHER ROAD’ AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE OK ROUTE 66 ASSOCIATION, RHYS MARTIN.

Circle Cinema is Tulsa’s oldest-standing movie theatre that originally opened in 1928 and now operates as the only nonprofit cinema in the area. In 1945, Tulsa had 26 movie theaters. Of those, only one remains standing today: the Circle Theater. Built in 1928 on the old 1926-32 alignment of Route 66 through Tulsa, the Circle was part of the central shopping district in Tulsa’s earliest suburban shopping center, Whittier Square. Like almost all historic single-screen movie palaces, the Circle struggled to remain viable in the age of the multiplex. By the mid-1990s it was shuttered and threatened with demolition. Thanks to the tireless work of the Circle Cinema Foundation, today the Circle is going stronger than ever, and in July 2013 celebrated its 85th anniversary grand reopening.
