You may notice that some of our pages look a little different.
In late January of this year, Classic Cinema Online was rather hastily put together without a whole lot of planning for the design, only a few simple ideas.
Since I'm not exactly a veteran of web design, and wanted to keep things simple, I had a lot of playing around to do in order to discover how to make the site look the way I wanted. Being very busy with raising my family and running ChattyworldCentral.Com, I didn't set aside a whole lot of time for the design that I wanted, I was more into getting the pages usable and uploaded.
My original idea was to have a billboard that would announce the movies that are showing, and the red drapes, of course, were an absolute must in keeping with the original movie theater theme style, as traditionally, back in the days of classic cinema, the Grande Drape was always red velvet. I finally got around to implementing that idea, and boy was it a monotonous (but worth it) task.
Our colors have a specific purpose, as the traditional movie theaters tended to lean towards the use of marble and brass in their decor, in addition to red velvet, so our color spectrum echoes those. As well, the black represents the darkened theater when the movie plays, plus black looks really good with red anyway, they just "click".
So, anyway, we now have our billboards announcing what's playing now, and you'll notice that some movies on the bill have stars by them, these are the movies that are of the higher quality, and if you're using dial up, they may or may not take a while to load.
I hope you enjoy the new look, this one's a keeper.
