Update for Monday May 9th 2022

I have been adding TONS of new articles and photos for indoor theaters over the last few days. I have expanded the "Latest Pictures" for "Indoor Theaters" below to include 100 entries in order to display them all for easy reference. I have been focusing on early multiplexes and shopping center theaters lately but have also added photos for others as well.

Update for Sunday, May 8th, 2022

I took a short road trip today and got some photos of some multiplexes in the Detroit area. The links are in "Latest Pictures" under "Indoor Theaters" on this page just below. I figured out the old Pandora 1&2 in Taylor on Telegraph was still standing empty. Same with the Taylor 10. The Star Southfield 20 is now closed as well so I grabbed some pics of it before the wrecking ball comes.

I have finished the location cleanup for the most part and I have added tons of new photos and information. At long last I am now attempting to add some mapping to the web site which I have wanted to do for years. For now, my first attempt is here. It is just a simple map of all locations for now. It is in the experimental stage so there are going to be some errors. It is on the "General Info" menu under "Master Location Map".

I have also been analyzing my Google Analytics to see what subjects my visitors frequent most. Some of the new sections are doing better than others. The core of the site remains the theaters, amusement park, and auto racing sections so I will continue to enhance those. Thanks for stopping by!
