This is the movie theatre in my hometown.
It was built in 1913, and like anyplace it is special to some and holds no significance for others. But for anyone who watched the vaudeville acts perform here, or the silent movies that would soon begin to talk, or perhaps kissed someone they cared for, it was a very special place. In 1976 I saw my first movie here.
