The Cinema Theatre Association are delighted to announce that the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation (LAHTF) is collaborating with us for a spectacular online presentation on the theme of Atmospheric Cinemas and Theatres.

You'll see many outstanding examples discussed and illustrated. The 60-minute presentation will be followed by a Q+A session from experts at the LAHTF and CTA. The presentation will also feature the four atmospheric London Astorias.

Marcus Loew famously said, “Patrons buy tickets to theaters, not movies,” and this may not hold truer than with atmospheric theatres. We invite you to join CTA and the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation as we explore the quaint villages, European Cities and fantasy lands within theatres of the 1920s and 30s. This design style was renowned architect John Eberson’s signature, creating an experience for Americans who may never have travelled beyond the United States.

During the presentation we will visit Los Angeles, travel across the US and explore a few locations around the globe (including the UK). Whether under a perfect summer blue sky or a twinkling starry night, your imagination is certain to run wild and deliver you to a faraway locale.

This is the first time that so much material about this unique theatre style has been brought together for your enjoyment and will truly be a feast for the eyes.
