Thst looks beautiful. It's a pity that it's gone.

Our most beautiful movie theater in town was torn down a long time ago with the smaller ones too. We have one original theater left; it's used for stage plays. We also had an organ in the one at the beginning of my comment.

I hate hearing about these beautiful buildings getting demolished. It's too bad they couldn't turn it into a live theater, or something.

I wonder what's in its place now?

My SIGNS, SIGNS

We sure agree about these things, don't we! Thanks

My heart breaks a little when I hear of these beautiful buildings - especially theatres - demolished.

I think I went to the Waikiki Theatre only once and I think it was to see The Sound of Music.

Beautiful in its day. We've lost a good number of theatres in the core of our city, all while megaplexes open up in the outlying areas.

The old Time downtown theatres were so imaginative and a treat to visit. It's a shame that this one was demolished. Sad.

I wish they hadn't torn it down. I think it is better to save some nostalgic landmarks.

Nancy Chan said...

It is a pity all these beautiful theaters in many places have been pulled down. Only the memories lived on....

I feel sad when such old heritage structures are brought down.

Old theatre's you can't beat them, we have a few they have a more comfortable feeling about them than the new ones.
