Nice shor. The sepia works so well. Like the darkness of the sky attop. I would have guessed somewhare like Kansas, not Atlanta.

Stunning image. It reminds me the albumTeatro by Willie Nelson.
Love the treatment.
Gus Rosenfeld27-Jun-2006 18:46
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
Yves Rubin08-Jun-2006 01:19
The dynamism of this wide angle is just superb! Terrific shot!

Ah, I miss those days. Someone else used the word "melancholy". Very appropriate.
jon_b26-May-2006 22:35
Great mood with the sepia tint
Luc VN23-May-2006 17:24
Technically excellent and yet very expressive. You have made the inanimate come alive.
Zane Paxton22-May-2006 06:13
A powerful image

The stories these walls could tell...a certain sadness about it's isolation that you have captured so brilliantly... voting
Bill Harris07-May-2006 10:48
A past age, so melancholy.. wonderful
Kees Terberg20-Apr-2006 21:56
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.
Barbara Read and Fred Schaad26-Mar-2006 21:59
Great shot! A wonderful piece of Americana.

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.
Guest 31-Jan-2006 01:25
Stunning image, reminiscent of Walker Evans, very well done!
Guest 01-Jan-2006 15:28
Can you tell me what tool in Photoshop (i assume) you used to darken the sky at the top of the pic? Looks fantastic!
Marchael16-Dec-2005 18:24
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.

Wonderfully all respects! I'm wondering if there is even a possiblity that this gem is still standing some form!
Bill Tobin02-Dec-2005 17:02
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!

sevres babylone08-Nov-2005 06:43
An amazing picture. And the name of the theatre gives it added poignancy or symbolism. Well done.
pwh08-Nov-2005 04:26
Great capture!
Wendy O20-Oct-2005 02:08
Nice capture, I like the sepia and the isolation of this building.
llung06-Aug-2005 18:21
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!
