Day Trip II

I love old theaters and I could not resist running back to capture this one after I drove by it in Las Vegas, NM. I think they have so much more character than these big Cineplexes they are building now. Have a great Sunday everyone!

I so agree -- they don't make 'em like this anymore.

I agree about old theaters. We've got one downtown which is still going but it is a real struggle. I guess I should patronize it... :-)

Beautiful facade and sign, very well captured, I love the sunlight!
Have a great Sunday and week ahead,

You're absolutely right about theatres! I haven't been in Las Vegas for a few years, but don't remember seeing this. Guess I'd better be more observant. Have a GREAT week-end!

This one looks like it's been wonderfully restored.

Michelle said...

Judy said...

I couldn't agree more! This is a nice one.

Every town or city still needs at least one.

Randy, your words and your photo speak the truth about this sort of theater vs the monster theater of today. Thanks!

It's wonderful! So there is a Las Vegas NM - I learn so much on everyone's blogs.

Really nice and colorful!

I agree with you completely. When I am in cities that still have places like this in operation, I choose them over the huge impersonal cinemas if I have the chance.

Looks the best, a grand old building.

Me too Randy, the newer cinemas may have bigger and better screens etc but definitely not the same ambience oui!
