Does anyone know what happened to the Rhodes Theater signs that use to hang on the building? Also does anyone have a head-on photo of the outside of the theater?

Here is the outside of the Rhodes today. You can see in the photo two white rectangular areas on either side of the entrance. These areas housed glass poster encasements with Rhodes Theater on the glass and neon tubing around the interior perimeter. One of the cases was broken during the teardown and I have the other one. The neon is still intact and works! It is a great piece of memoribilia. http://flickr.com/photos/maincourse/346047916/

Hi Kim. Great memories. Do you have any head on photos of the Rhodes? I’d really like to have a photo of the ticketing area with the poster encasement that was built into the building.

I am looking for a photo of the front of the Rhodes. When it was being demolished I managed to obtain one of the two poster encasements from the front of the theater. I use to go to the Rhodes almost every weekend as a teenager. I thought it was a glorious building. Every time I saw a movie there it felt like stepping back in time to a better age of film. I would be very interested in pictures of this grand theater that is no more.
