    Photos of Theatres & Cinemas

    Well, I did a search and couldn't find an existing thread - so I wondered if anyone else had been making photos of cinemas and theatres? I dragged my Wista into work last Friday to make this snap of the (nearly) 90 year old Capitol Theatre interior, since it's coloured ceiling lights have been newly restored:

    Snapped with Nikon 65mm f/4 lens on Kodak Portra 160 with an 80A filter.

    This is a topic I've been working on. I intend to photograph all the remaining theaters in Chicago which was a very important city in the history of film. There are about 175 existing buildings that at one time or another showed movies. Many theaters are still in business, but generally struggling and slowly going out of business.

    Not all of them were big fancy venues.

    Here are a few images of a nice theater in Wilkes Barre PA. For years I used the storefront image as my business card. Photographed with my TK45S on Velvia 50.
