    Not a great pic but....it was part of Big Ds Tagorama game. Had to go past the chain link fence to get close enough. I think it's getting demolished. The bridge you see is for a lite train or commuter metro. Would have liked a pic with the metro in it, just to show the old and the new.

    Roanoke Alabama. Pretty much just the skeleton of a theatre, as is much of the downtown area. Cool nonetheless. I love finding stuff like this when I ride with no destination in mind.

    It closed down about 6 years ago. The doors were unlocked up there, but I was a good boy and stayed out of the building. :rofl

    Coleman Theatre, Miami, Oklahoma.

    [​IMG]

    Located off historic Route 66 in northeast Oklahoma, the Coleman Theatre is an iconic piece of Oklahoma history. From the day it opened in 1929, this legendary theater has been entertaining audiences with impressive theatrical productions and structural beauty.

    The Miami landmark began as a Vaudeville movie theater built by George L. Coleman Sr. The exterior architecture is Spanish Mission Revival, and terra cotta gargoyles and other hand-carved figures adorn the building facade. The elegant Louis XV interior includes gold leaf trim, silk damask panels, stained glass panels, a carved mahogany staircase, a 2,000 pound chandelier, decorative plaster moldings and railings.

    The beautiful theater was donated to the city of Miami by the Coleman family in 1989. Over the years the Coleman Theatre has been renovated and is every bit as beautiful as it was in 1929. A highlight of the building is the original pipe organ, called "The Mighty Wurlitzer," which continues to fill the beautiful theater with terrific music today. The theater presents a variety of exceptional entertainment year-round. Entertainment at the theater includes ballet, opera, silent films, jazz and dance bands as well as community pageants and events.

    From Barnsdall's newspaper archives:

    The theater was originally an opera house known as the Runyon theater, named after C.A. Runyon, who built it in 1919. It was one of the biggest theaters in the state at the time.
    It eventually moved up with the times and became a movie theater known as Thompson Theater. It closed in 1963, but was reopened as Bigheart Theater in 1993 by J.R. Townley. It closed again in the mid-1990s.
    The second and third stories were apartments for a time, before a fire claimed a good portion of them.
