Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 9 locations lighting 46 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939?a time when movies were called ?picture shows,? Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
The Canton Palace Theatre is a 1509 - seat theatre built in 1926. The Palace is available for use for corporate events, private movies, private receptions and wedding ceremonies. The majestic Palace Theatre is the heartbeat of the Canton community and plays host to over 300 events (movies, recitals, conecerts) per year.

It was June 1, 1950 when the screens first lit up at Dependable Drive-In. And although film stars have changed over the years, the spirit of the movies has stayed as strong as it was on that long-ago summer day. Families and friends still pull into drive-in and select one of the first-run features showing on its four screens. As the action unfolds, Dolby Sound comes pulsing through the car, truck, or pumpkin carriage's own stereo system.
At the snack bar, friendly staffers serve up a menu as timeless as the drive-in's old-fashioned speakers (which have been made into nostalgic clocks available for customer purchase). Hot dogs, nachos, root beer floats, and other favorites all pair perfectly with movies about alien invasions or just one 90-minute shot of Keanu Reeve looking really intense.
Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats.
His brainchild became Dealflicks, a website that offers customers discounted tickets (sometimes with popcorn or soda) for same-day showings. Customers shop a selection of deals, each of which is specific to a particular film, theater, and showtime, and upon purchase, receive an email voucher they present at the theater's ticket counter. Dealflicks is partnered with theaters around the country, particularly independent and neighborhood venues, such as the treehouse of the enterprising kid down the street.
