Neighborhood Theaters Fading Away       ©2011 mrsawyer
Panasonic DMC-FZ50       7th place, 113 points
1/30s, f3.2, ISO 100, 56mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped, Levels, Cloned out distraction, Sharpened       Extra Info: This is the oldest continuously running theater in town. It is an independent 2-screen theater that opened in 1939. Other such places have been replaced by giant cinemas with 8 to 24 screens. There is an effort to maintain this last-of-it's-kind theater through memberships, donations, and renting of the facility for private functions.

    I have passed this place probably hundreds of times over the years and never ventured in. After reading about it for this challenge, I will be visiting it soon. It is in Atlanta, GA on Ponce de Leon.

    Sadly so many of these are gone, or about to go. I spent a lot of my youth in these palaces. In those days the movie was just part of the experience. Nice capture of the way they should be remembered. If only it had one of those big ol' lines out front, like back in the day...

    That is certainly a vintage theatre, and oh so similar to the ones I went to when I was younger. 25 cents for the Saturday matinee!
