Joe, I’m with you on the architect – it is much more representative of Pettigrew’s taste/style than Eberson’s.

Ok. for some reason, that link will not work. You’ll need to copy and paste the Whole link, including THeatre to see the shots.. Sorry.. For some reason, it is leaving off the “THeatre” part of the link above….

I was on a job in Dallas in the summer of ‘98. I went and saw 5 old movies at the lake. I recall there was “The Philidelphia Story”, “The Awful Truth” and a few others. It wasn’t like going to see just a movie, it was like going to an event. They showed old serial movies first and served drinks right at your seat. An announcer would introduce the feature movie. It was great. Don’t know if they still do that.
