Entertainment Weekly on 10 top theaters

From Cinematical, an excerpt from an Entertainment Weekly piece on "10 Theaters Doing It Right."

Says Cinematical:

"The theaters on this list offer some wonderful amenities: inventive programming, beer, restricted admission for children, reserved seats, and even on-site child care. These are not theaters that treat audiences like captive cattle. When big-chain theaters complain about shrinking audience numbers, they should examine these theaters."

The list:

1. Alamo Drafthouse: Austin, TX
2. Kennedy School: Portland, OR
3. The Castro: San Francisco
4. The Senator: Baltimore, MD
5. Film Forum: NYC
6. Cable Car Cinema: Providence, RI
7. The Arclight: Hollywood
8. Grauman's Chinese Theatre: Hollywood
9. The Oriental: Milwaukee, WI
10. Muvico Paradise 24: Davie, FL
