      I am such a sucker for these 'teens theatres which have the large center entry; cool in the daytime, a spectacular blast of light at night. They are architecture that truly found its own, particular face to present to the street, they could be nothing else but theaters, & they were theatrical.

      And just a couple of blocks away from an old Edison studio, too, that building was still there when I was a kid.
