A Night At The Theatre
Last night I went to a concert as a part of the artist's series at my university. I went with a few friends and we had a really good time.
The theatre was beautiful, and actually pretty fascinating. I have lived close to it for years, and while I knew that it had a fascinating history, I had no idea of it's historical significance. It was really quite fascinating. Apparently, in 1928, this was one of the biggest theaters in the country, second only to the Roxy. Years ago,it was used for vaudeville. It is really fascinating, it has tunnels that go underneath, as well as many of the original fixtures and designs. I would love to take a tour of the building! The detail is so spectacular. I took tons of pictures, but most of them were too dark to see anything. I also took many outfit photos all over the theatre, but those did not really turn out either.
All in all it was a fantastic night in a spectacular location.
