    Wow, there is such a range from simple to decadent.

      And they’re just the theaters I’ve stumbled upon in my travels.

    So cool!! Thanks again, Jim. You and a couple others on Facebook have opened my eyes to some of the amazing Midwest!

    Neat series, Jim. I like the Art Deco in a couple of these.

    Indiana and Chicago for me Jim. Love the detailed stonework. As others have said, a nice little series.

      When I lived in Terre Haute, the Indiana was a dollar theater. I went in there all the time. What a gorgeous place it was.

    There are some interesting show names, for sure. I noticed that Crump Theatre and some other U.S. theatres I’ve seen in photos use the the British spelling for theatre/theater. Maybe it’s tradition? Oddly, the movie theatre in my Newfoundland home town is called The Popular Theater with the U.S. spelling. And it’s been around since my father was a boy. A newer theatre is called the Queen Street Theatre with the proper (for us) spelling. Maybe the original owner of the Popular Theater didn’t know how to spell. Anyway, I think it’s called the Classic Theater now. Same spelling of theater.

      I think that in the US we use “theatre” when we want to sound fancy.

    This makes me miss the ol’ Von Lee Theater in Bloomington.

      I got to see one movie there back in the late 80s!

      I have photos of the facade of the Von Lee, but since there’s no theater behind it anymore I chose not to include it in this collection.

        Oh my, that is painful to look at. I was at IU from ‘94-97 and had friends who worked there. Saw many free movies ;)
