Well, in Andrew's Drive-in thread terraserver was mentioned as a way to check out driv-in's across the country. Instead of clogging that thread I decided to start a new one for people to post the links to pictures of their homes and the theatres they work at.

My Theatre

The threatre is the wing jutting out of the mall at the top of the picture. The dark tinted roof is the 'old' side built in 1986 and the lighter roof is the 'new' side built in 1997.

Unfortunatley, my hous which is only about 20 miles south of the theatre has not been deemed important enough yet to earn a spot on terraserver.

Here is the aerial photo of our theatre in 1997. Our building is accross the road from the baseball diamond, directly through right field.

Rialto Cinemas Lakeside

Note the lake, hence the name Rialto Cinemas Lakeside. It used to be called the Park Cinemas. I wonder why they changed the name. We are accross from the best park I have seen outside of New York's Central Park or San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

This is fun!

Here is Loews Webster 12-Plex, which is a few miles from my home in Penfield NY. It is the large rectangular building, and was built on the site of the old Empire Drive-In. The light gray roof is over the original 8 (larger) auditoriums, the dark gray over the 4 smaller ones added a few years later:

Here is the New Angola Theatre, the hardtop that I worked at from 1967-1970 (now closed ). It is the long building on the left hand side of the north-south Main Street in Angola, NY, about 200 metres north of the railroad tracks with the train moving by:

Here is Lake Shore Central, in Angola NY, where I went to high school. The other famous alumni include Willis Carrier, the inventor of air conditioning used in theatres:

Too bad these photos are not "real time" --- they could be used to spy on how the competition is doing by seeing how many cars are in the parking lot.

The Terraserver rocks! I found the street on which a theatre where I used to work is located, but the theatre itself can barely be seen. Maybe in a few years, the resolution will be even better.

Unfortunately Terraserver doesn't cover the UK but here is an aerial photograph 1997 vintage of our Museum and theatres.

The red circle sits on the building with the curved frontage that houses the main museum (prior to our 1999 rebuild) which includes the Imax theatre . The green trapezoid roof to the left is Pictureville Cinema(35/70mm,Cinerama). The two are now linked by the new extension which also houses the 100 seat Cubby Broccoli Cinema

Before anyone else posts one of these incredibly LONG Terraserver links, P L E A S E read the "faq" halfway down the page titled "If you are linking to another website that has a long URL address".

Also, as this has nothing to do with theater management, I am moving this to the Yak forum.
