Here's one in Pretoria: Africa's first and last 'atmospheric theatre'. Sadly in decay now.

Sad to see: especially pages 2 and 3.  Bluesad

The last one in my area was The Granada in Malden, Massachusetts.  I used to go there when I was a kid and then as a teenager.  Here are some movies I saw there in the 1970s and 80s:

* MOTHER'S DAY (1980) and DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) double feature
* CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954) and IT CAME FROM  OUTER SPACE (1953) double feature in 3-D!
* ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (1969)
* MOONRAKER (1979)
* THE ROSE (1979)
* UP IN SMOKE (1978) and THE WARRIORS (1979) double feature
* YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE (1983)

I'm sure there are others that I can't remember at the moment.

     PALACE THEATRE (PALACE CIVIC CENTER) LORAIN, OHIO

     This was the original exterior; the vertical part of the marquee was gone by the time I came along....



     The auditorium looks like this....



After a refurbishment (and name change) in 1976, the outside looks thus....



     The Lorain Palace Civic Center, on the National Register of Historic Places....big whoop- I'd rather have the old Palace back.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
