The Photo Gallery pages for movies and theaters was upgraded recently to support larger photos. Previously, all photos were limited to 600 pixels wide and 600 pixels high. Now, photos are still limited to the same height to maintain viewability on a wide range of devices, but the width can be as wide as 900 pixels, which provides a much nicer view!

You can see the difference illustrated in screenshots of the Photo Gallery for Captain America: Civil War below:

Photo Gallery - Standard View

Before - Standard 600 pixel wide photo

Photo Gallery - VIP View

After - Wider 900 pixel wide photo

To see the super-sized photos, you will need to create an account on this site, or be logged in to the one you already have. If you don't yet have an account, it's very easy to sign up for one, and doing so opens up quite a few really cool features on this site, including saving lists of your Favorite Movies and Favorite Theaters, as well as leaving comments on Journal articles like this, comments about theaters, and writing movie reviews!

When available to us, all photos added to Photo Gallery pages from this date forward will be larger. That doesn't apply to the thousands of photos that we already have on the site, however.

Arrow Keys for Navigating the Photos

Another feature that was added is the ability to navigate through the available photos using your arrow keys. The right and left arrow keys will allow you to page forward and backward through the available photos.

Get Rid of the Ads for a Better View

You will notice in the examples above that the ad to the left of the smaller photo is missing. Most people like less advertising, so that's why we offer you the ability to get rid of all the ads on the page with our VIP Service! You can block the ads and access even more exclusive features for a very low subscription fee. Please visit our VIP Service section for more information.
