I still don't know why it has to look like a spaceship. There are countless downtown theaters that fit in aesthetically with their surroundings. I was just in Arlington, Massachusetts and they have a six screen theater in a building fronted with a bakery, a toy store, a salon... Thinking that theaters can only look like suburban malls shows either a lack of imagination or a lack of awareness.
