Clarification[edit]

Can the last paragraph of Consolidation be clarified? After reading it a few times, I'm assuming that the "Loews" is referring to an American counterpart, as it says earlier that Loews became Cineplex Galaxy. SKS2K6 05:47, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

The multiple references to AMC make this section impossible to understand - what is this meant to be saying 92.236.57.236 (talk) 12:35, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

The section about the brands is a bit confusing. Colossus, Coliseum and SilverCity were all originally Famous Players brands, but this is not made clear by the article Ergosteur (talk) 03:08, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

-The entire section is terribly written and very difficult to follow. Should be re-written by someone with some understanding of it, the facts are too buried and obscured to re-write based on the article itself. Fruitbatnt (talk) 17:14, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Famous Players[edit]

Hello. I and some others are working on an article for the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, formerly the Stanley, a Famous Players cinema in Vancouver. Would anyone like to help out? The more the merrier! Anyway, in my research I came across this statistic that you may want to use in your article: "the Famous Players' theatre chain shrank from 419 in 1954 to 196 in 1969." from page 3 of http://www.southgranville.org/pdfs/sgbia_newsletter_april2007web.pdf Moisejp (talk) 02:06, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Market capitalization[edit]

Perhaps we could change this to Canadian currency, since this is a Canadian company. NorthernThunder (talk) 22:19, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

The standard here is to use international dollars. Ok?

controversy[edit]

I don't know about everyone else, but I wouldn't really call refusing to play a religious ad controversial. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Charwinger21 (talkcontribs) 15:07, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

I agree; it seems like a stale piece of recentism, with no long-term notability. I have therefore boldly removed it as part of my copyedit. // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 04:20, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Theatre counts?[edit]

The "Branding" section of the article enumerates the number of theatres for each brand. Since there are no {{as of}} tags or other dates, I'm concerned that this information may be out of date. Can someone verify the current theatre counts for each brand? // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 04:20, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
