    I miss old fashioned cinema theatres :(  This one is a treat for the eye.  Have a great Sunday with your family. x

    That’s beautiful. Reminds me of a theater we had close to our place in another city, decades ago, called The Plaza. It used to show only English films. I’ll never forget watching Saturday Night Fever, Scaramouche, The Duchess and the dirtwater fox, Flashdance… you know – those days.

    Can you imagine, I expected to see more photos of you? :-) 

    Happy Sunday to you!

    I love these old retro theaters and signs. It does my heart good to see them restored and still in use.

    Very cool old theatre.  I spelled it that way on purpose – retro spelling for a lovely retro building.

    I love old historical buildings like that.  We have the Tampa Theatre, which simply stunning.  May they all live long!

    Lovely images but it is the amazing blue sky that attracts my eye… we seem to be stuck in constant grey skies at the moment.

    Theaters built in the early 1900′s had so much character. These are wonderful shots, so vivid. Have a wonderful week.
