Alas…We say a very fond farewell to the Wyandotte Theatre…
I cannot believe the number of “stories” I’ve heard about the theatre —– real people in the streets with cameras and sighs and fond memories shared with me as I photographed (every day, in many stages, â€˜round the clock) the tear down. Oh! The bitter-sweetness of it all… People standing still, shaking their heads in sad disbelief…staying longer, quietly sitting “bedside with a dying friend."
I regret I did not have a tape recorder…
Residents strolled past the scrap of our once vital, exciting, entertaining social corner on 1st and Elm Streets. A solid core of memories mingle us with the bricks on the ground. Strohs or Sanders ice cream treats in handâ€¦ we all stop, all recollect our special, pleasant moments in time with friends, with family, with ownership in Wyandotte Theatre history.
See you at the movies â€¦â€¦â€¦.
