Theatrical details


Here's a look at the beautifully restored ceiling of the Elgin theater. The Elgin was originally a vaudeville house which was later converted to show "talkies". Unfortunately many of the wonderful details were lost during the transition, but now that the theater has been designated as a historical landmark, it has been restored and renovated back to its former glory. I'm only sad my photos don't really do the place justice. I'll show you more of this wonderful location tomorrow!

I remember these old theaters from my youth in Minneapolis. Even some of the movie theaters were like cathedrals. Beautiful shot of a gorgeous ceiling.

I remember when they started restoring it and found all of the old wonders hidden behind drywall etc. Super shot!

There is nothing wrong with this photo, Halcyon. Aren't old movie palaces great?

There is just something about the word 'Elgin' for me. I love this word. Strange?

What an absolutely beautiful theater! I'm sure everyone's glad it got restored. And those "trees" inside are something else!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
