Almost makes me cry to see homeless sleeping in front of this once-beautiful, now decrepit theater. The marquee is still advertising “Thor: The Dark World” and “Frozen.” All the retail stores physically connected to it are empty; maybe the whole structure will be demolished. It almost certainly will never re-open as a theater. But I can dream … I remember seeing “The Wild Geese” (Richard Burton, Richard Harris) with friends in 1978. We had to sit in the balcony because one of them was a smoker. (:D) Joey D’s pizzeria across the street, also gone with the wind.
