Theater photography project

posted by Michael Zoldessy on April 10, 2009 at 9:35 am

I’m a professional photographer with an assignment to photograph a few classic theaters. The results will be displayed as very large prints in the lobby of the Lynwood Theater on Bainbridge Island, WA. I’m looking for suggestions of theaters to photograph in the Washington/Oregon area that would be most photogenic. They could also be former theaters now functioning as other businesses, or closed but intact, large or small.

The Mack Theatre in McMinnville, Oregon. You might also search as many theatres in both states are listed there and many have photos.
