Description:
This category is meant for buildings that are still classic theaters or buildings that once were theaters. If it is no longer a theater, then it must still have the theater features.
Also no waymark will be accepted if the building was built after 1950 unless there is an amazing story behind the theater.
Expanded Description:
These buildings should be vintage, not newly built to look vintage.
A vintage theater is defined by a theater which has hosted filmed productions at one time in its life. It has also been in existence for more than 60 years. If the date is not clear, the acceptance of the waymark is at the discretion of the group. Also the exterior should still have most of its theater decorations (i.e neon lights, marquee, and theater logo).

Examples of these buildings are:
