Art Deco Theater on Davis Street


I love this old structure with it's deco-green tiled facade. The stack of rondelles to the left of the corner entrance are covered over with chicken wire, presumably to keep the pigeons from roosting there. I'll bet this place looked swell all lit up with neon in its heyday.

phlegmy,

I dig it too!

High Deco is perhaps my favorite style. Lots of detail on these, usually, and many still stand today, though derelict and decaying.

More, please!

This has given me an idea, thanks.

How interesting. Was this always a cinema? To me, it looks as if it could have been a church, too.

I like those old semi-deco semi-modernism structures. Beautiful photo.
