paulnelson commented about Roxy Theatre, New York in 1927 - Proscenium on Sep 22, 2014 at 6:54 pm

One of the most beautiful proscenium designs in the history of the movie palace. The whole place a masterpiece. I am sure Gloria Swanson shed a few tears when this place came down.

The ceiling dome is beautiful and the lighting too. Buildings like these should always be preserved for the ages.

paulnelson commented about What about the curtains? on Sep 21, 2014 at 6:30 pm

A newer very hightech theatre in Seattle is the Majestic Bay in Ballard. Ice blue verticle opening waterfall style curtain that opens twice at the start of each film presentation. The 2 theatres above the main auditorium have no curtain. This theatre is very elegant compared to any other movie theatre in Seattle. I miss the concept of using a curtain. It is like the art of tea. It is a new built from foundation theatre.

paulnelson commented about Ritz Theatre, interior, post renovation on Sep 16, 2014 at 9:44 pm

Good design in redo. Art moderne look. Great lighting. Similar to the old Crest in Seattle. My local theatre of choice in the 50’s. 2ND AND 3RD AND THEN 1ST RUN FILMS. Still going strong.

Incredible art deco interior with such great detail.

paulnelson commented about Loma Theatre on Aug 29, 2014 at 9:12 pm

This is so wonderful. To save the great art deco interior for the bookstore. Classy approach. Most retail business would not be this sensitive to an historic building. Colors and design inside is quite handsome.

Ceiling treatment is so art deco. Rounded corners and looks like indirect lighting. Subtle design.

paulnelson commented about Ames Tribune Photo. on Aug 12, 2014 at 7:42 pm

I hope the rounded box office was not changed. Very retro and handsome. Line of kids right out of Father Knows Best or Leave It To Beaver. Great pic. Chrome palace!

I would like to see the interior of this small town gem. It is obviously in need of repair but has a lot of style anyway.
