America's Classic Cinemas continues to travel across the county, collecting photos and memories of these places that have provided entertainment to so many people.  It is important to give these places an online presence in order to share them with both those who have fond memories, and those whom have never had the opportunity to visit them.  All images are the property of David Leonhardt  unless noted and cannot be used without permission.

We've had the opportunity to stop by the Charles Theatre twice for unscheduled visits.  The first time, we were only able to take exterior shots.  The second time, we were able to take lobby and nighttime exteriors, but a movie was playing, so no auditorium :)  We were invited to come back after the show, but the timing didn't work out that night.  Hopefully third time's the charm to see it all!
