I just redownloaded to be sure, but I'm getting an error message from this theater mode.  The background shows up, and player controls at the top, but none of the other elements.  Can anyone advise on fixing it?

(The error names "line 6, position 21")

I love this Mode. I did some tweaking of the original with lyrics, duration and upcoming on it. I don't want to take your work. i just added some elements to it for my use. Is it ok to post the .xml code on here for others to have?

I did some changes to this and I'm pretty happy with it except I would like to have the upcoming songs listed on the bottom right, I'm not sure how to do this, so if anyone could help I would appreciate it.

I love this theme, but (yes, here comes the but) would it be possible to bring the year from the "background" to the foreground and place it smack in the middle under the album art in white numbers. If anybody knows how, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
