Poll: Siskel, Ebert and the IMDb Poll Board's Potential Theatres' Names

During one of Siskel and Ebert's early Sneak Previews (1975), the two critics asked each other that question: If you owned a movie theater, what would you call it?. Siskel liked the word "Paradise", Ebert went for "The MacGuffin".

Asked the same question, each IMDb Poll Board user suggested a potential name, either with an personal connection, a sentimental movie-related value or just because it sounded too good not to be picked.

Now, which of these movie theatres, if they really existed, would you be the most interested to go to?
