Excited About Tonight
This is just a portion of the details at the top of the Lensic theater here in Santa Fe. Here is a small snippet from Wikipedia "The Lensic Theater is an 821 seat theater designed by Boller Brothers of Kansas City, well known movie theater and vaudeville house architects who designed almost one hundred theaters throughout the West and mid-West, including the KiMo Theater in Albuquerque. The pseudo-Moorish, Spanish Renaissance Lensic was built by Nathan Salmon and E. John Greer and opened on 24 June 1931. Its name derives from the initials of Greer's six grandchildren.
The Lensic was completely restored and renovated between 1999 and 2001, and provides Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico with a modern venue for the performing arts
The best part, tonight I am attending a lecture featuring photographer Annie Leibovitz who is here in Santa Fe for the opening of her show at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.
