New Tag:
Was looking for a historic movie theater.
This was a movie theater from when it was built (1936) until 1988

The road its on Falls as the same number as an Army Division and is also named for a Civil War General who may or may not have had something to do with a Church.



Ali is in the center flower pot of 3 pots on the right side of the building




Pretty well hidden between the edge and the red/orange/yellow plant.



How it will probably look driving up.



Alternate tag picture if you are not inclined to park in the street.



Editing to add an additional clue (from the tag picture):

I'd be more likely to during off-hours.

The guard came out after we got done taking pictures. I tried to appease him by telling him we were just after a quick picture and were leaving post haste but he said "I don't care what ya'll do." and walked off to the 7-11.

There were people hanging around - but no guards came out.

That tag took me about the longest to figure where it is.

From a message board:

> We must not forget the "Toilet Bowl building" in
> Vienna.


you got it all wrong, that's a Stargate. :)

Toilets are stargates?

Like the new tag, that's a great theater.
Nice grab Elk, good to see you back in the game

Apparently nobody wants to make the grab in between torrential downpours.

I thought about field testing my rain liners...

I need to scout some more tag spots before doing another grab.

I wonder if a road with the word "ford" in it will be impacted by recent heavy rain?

Well, the maps don't indicate a bridge.

Sadly, I got out there and the section that went down to the water was marked private.

Did find a pretty good tag location though.

???? I thought you were talking about Davis Ford. Or are you talking about the dirt road that goes down to the Occoquan River (I think it's called River Rd)? (Did i just C-block your future tag??)

I want to do a tag in the vicinity of Casanova. I have no idea what's there, but I saw the sign when I went out to the train bridge. Between the Zoolander movie and a cheezey 80's song - lots of corny references.

I guess I will have to wait for this post to get buried before I use that one
