A nice image of a bygone time.
so great, excelent seen and taken !
hmmm i think that you have a good feeling here! wow!
Love this one.. Make us think, and the way tat you show it to us is very artistic! Congratulations!
Stunning image. It reminds me the albumTeatro by Willie Nelson.
Love the treatment.
I've had the exact same experience as Kees regarding this capture.
It grabs me every time with its timeless presence in sepia. A powerful capture that will displace any boomer worth their salt. I smell an old Buick on a day too hot and don't have the energy to take the goat's-head out of my sock. The taste of dust from the lot, vacant too long, conveys only an evident wisp of activity from better times. g
The dynamism of this wide angle is just superb! Terrific shot!
This is one of my absolute favorites in Pbase!

Ah, I miss those days. Someone else used the word "melancholy". Very appropriate.
Great mood with the sepia tint
Technically excellent and yet very expressive. You have made the inanimate come alive.
A powerful image
Magnifique..., très beau bâtiment et très bon traitement.
Wonderful shot! V
Wonderful use of sepia! Voted
The stories these walls could tell...a certain sadness about it's isolation that you have captured so brilliantly... voting
A past age, so melancholy.. wonderful
It is quite strange, I have ben admiring this shot for a long time but keep on following my guts to the ballet shots. The architectural shots are great and yeah, this would also be one of my favourites.

The feeling is wonderful !!! Vote
Pefectly toned image. GMV
I collect movie theater images, oadside images from postcards of the 1930's -1960's. This is truly a fantastic image!!!!! One of the best on thsi site.
Stunning image, reminiscent of Walker Evans, very well done!
Can you tell me what tool in Photoshop (i assume) you used to darken the sky at the top of the pic? Looks fantastic!
Sad to see this in such disrepair, but it does make an excellent photo. :-) Makes you wonder what it was like during its heyday. Well done. Voted.
Great ! Voted.
Superb shot. voted.

Wonderfully vintage...in all respects! I'm wondering if there is even a possiblity that this gem is still standing today...in some form!
Whoa! Amazing, just amazing! This is album art material here. Can't you just see this on an old Rush album or something? I can! It's great!
I`m hooked on this shot!
Great shot. :-)
An amazing picture. And the name of the theatre gives it added poignancy or symbolism. Well done.
Nice capture, I like the sepia and the isolation of this building.
One imagines that at some point, this was a bustling theatre. It is surely a product of its time... now supplanted by sterile megaplexes. Great shot!
