The silent era of American cinema ended in the late 1920s with the golden age of Hollywood, later followed by the noisy era, which introduced a proliferation of cellphone usage by inconsiderate windbags.

It’s not 35¢ like they used to be, but it's probably the best movie deal out there. The Madison Theatre opened in 1929 and is still your affordable neighborhood family theater. Created by Thomas Lamb, the architect who designed Schenectady’s Proctor’s Theater, it would be one of the first theaters in the Capital District to be built with Warner Bros.’ Vitaphone sound process, rather than having the theater retrofitted for sound. Patrons could sit in one of 1,400 different upholstered seats. The first motion picture to grace the Madison’s screen was “The Desert Song,” a very popular film featuring John Boles and Myrna Loy. It featured scenes in two-strip Technicolor, which sadly are lost today.
