      Wonderful evening glow Shari! I love those golden tones and of course love these old theatres. (we have one near us that was just recently restored; showing movies again and hosting special events.) So sorry to lose any of these!

      Absolutely beautiful. I'm guessing the tall courthouse directly across the street must present a challenge in the way of constant shadows in the afternoon, at least during a good part of the year. Though I was born in WI and now live near San Francisco, three generations of my family called Bloomfield home. I used to spend my summers back there as a youth and loved those trips. This theater is the FIRST thing I look for when I get into town, always breathing a sigh of relief when I am greeted by its distinctive facade. Your wonderful capture lets me know that all is still well with the theater remaining intact. While many memories from my youth often fade into the background, your image instantly transported me back to so many happy days spent wandering around the downtown square and marveling at the architecture of the courthouse. When I used to return back to my home, at the time in Los Angeles, I would show people my amateur snapshots of my wanderings through the small towns I always visited (primarily Bloomfield, Strawberry Point, & Ft. Dodge) and people who were LA natives couldn't believe such wonderful spots still existed! Thank you so much for starting my day off with a smile by sharing the fruit of your talents.

      When every small town had a theater and it was a great source of pride for the community. Would love to explore inside....

      This is a great shot. Nice eye for the right lighting, which adds a mood that would otherwise be missing.

      Beautiful work. What camera/lenses do you use and what type of post-processing do you perform?

      Very nice Shari. Love that late afternoon glow. Your photo looks as if it could have been taken 50 years ago. Thanks for adding it to the VSOTM group!
