American Cinema

The American Theatre in Canton, New York has survived many a winter (and an unfortunately interior remodeling) with much of its twentieth-century charm intact. Continuing my investigation of the “slightly sinister” in small-town America (from yesterday and last spring), this is yet another charming vision of Americana. The echo of a passing car’s headlights in the street below only adds to the mystery.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this. A commenter in Cinema Treasures, a website focused on movie houses from all over the world stated, “AMERICAN – Seventy Thousand Dollar Moving Picture Theater Erected in 1921 by B. H. Rogers, Canton, N.Y.” http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/5961
    It is a trill for me to see marquees of theaters that I would not normally see and would have photographed. The American has a nice simple marquee and an interesting facade. I’m glad that the theater has survived.
