Who’s got the popcorn?

Way back then, people used to sit down here to watch what they called, Movie pictures.

I swear it wasn’t as noisy as this before the compression.

This theatre was officially opened May 19 1928, closed in 1992.

  1. Amazing pictures! Thanks for linking to my writeup about the Empress as well. I’d love to see any other photos you may have taken while inside, as well as a little more information about how you got in there in the first place! I will be printing the article in a magazine soon and might be interested in using your pictures!
