    I'm not much of a movie-goer, but we have a triple screen place about 5 miles away. Another 10-12 miles.

    The wonderful place is the Flynn Theater in Burlington (20 miles). Restored art deco that does live shows: music & plays. I've seen a lot of great music acts there & the ambiance is wonderful. Last thing I saw there was the touring version of Jersey Boys - a musical of the Four Seasons group - which was wonderful.

    Music is mostly in the summer here, with various outdoor venues. Fewer now than 20 years ago though. Oh! There's also a still open Drive-In movie theater about 15 miles away. Bring bug spray...

    May be that the French like their movie heiratage and are prepared to support it?

    Where Q lives, I went to a small theatre in Fakenham (?). It was family run . Mother on the tickets, son on the projector, father organising things.

    Must be long gone, as that was in the 70s.
    Strangely online on a model railway forum , I know an ex British Copper who lives near St Jean d'Angeley , or the danglies as he calls it.

    Fakenham s over 40 miles and over an hour by car from here, this cinema there is still openfakenham_cinema_outside.jpg

    The local theater in my town - New Cumberland, PA - has been undergoing renovation for the last several years. Seems to be doing well...
