go to waterwinterwonderland.com and find the Mercury Theater. I sent them some great shots of the murals that were sent to me. This site is
not accepting photos right now, so I couldn’t post them here.
Do you have any pictures of the murals from the Mercury Theater in Detroit?
I’m glad someone else laments the demolition of the glorious Mercury murals.They were indeed magical. I didn’t get to go there very often, and I don’t remember which movies I saw there, but I’ll never forget those grand and ethereal figures flying silently among the planets and stars. They always made me feel as if I were there with them in outer space. It’s hard for me to believe that no one considered the murals worth recording, not to mention saving. Surely there must be some record of them from the time the theater was built?
