A writer once described them as "New York's string of pearls stretching across the center of the state."  These seven theatres, all built in the 1920s or earlier, are nothing short of spectacular.  They follow a direct line across Upstate New York.  They were built for silent movies and grew to be the center of each city's entertainment world.  All of them hit hard times more than once along the way but they are still here, still open, still glittering, and still welcoming guests to "come and see a show."  These theatres are listed from Troy to Buffalo, east to west.  Take a look at these wonders!

Are These Upstate New York's Most Beautiful Theatres?
