Here are my pictures from November 2010. Virtually nothing has changed sicne Wallyum’s pictures, but I thought I’d add mine anyway.

I grew up in Louisville and went to the Capitol (and sometimes the Shelby) on literally every Friday night and Sunday afternoons for many years. Later, when I “graduated” from the old Emerson (elementary)School, I began attending the Uptown, Bard, and sometimes the Airway neighborhood theaters. I went to Highland Jr. High and 10th grade at the old Atherton High School, before moving with my parents to Indianapolis. MANY fond memories of growing up in Louisville!
