CATHS is always looking to enhance our archival collection. Perhaps you, or someone you know, can assist us.

For example, we would welcome interior photos of the following cinemas.

We also welcome any insights you may have about these cinemas.

As stated elsewhere on our web site, CATHS publishes a quarterly magazine CinemaRecord. In the magazine, we seek to document cinemas & theatres, past and present, large and small, to preserve the details for future generations.

Articles and pictures for this purpose are always welcome.
