Best Use of Space:
One of my favorite places is the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis. Tucked into a quiet neighborhood, this independent, single-screen theater has barely changed since it opened in 1948. The marquee and lobby make me smile each time I visit (and they have the best popcorn in town). I love that they updated what was really necessary—the technology—and kept all the original details that made movie-going feel like a special event.
