Grand Lobby of the The Warner Grand Theater - Milwaukee, WI
The Warner Brothers Theater chain spent $2.5 million dollars to open this movie palace in May 1931 in the midst of the Great Depression.  Originally there were maroon draperies around the mirrors that would have softened the effect of all that silver.  The movie theater closed in 1995 and was in danger of being demolished.  But The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra acquired and renovated the theater as their new performance space. The grand opening was scheduled for spring of 2020 when the pandemic hit.  They recently began doing concerts with live, socially distanced audiences and I was happy to be there last night.
See my adjacent post for the interior of the theater.

Hi househunting, developers are trying to tear down a historic hostel from the 1890s (a rare and special building age for a city as young as Seattle) to build a hotel. It will obstruct the entrance of pike place market, remove historical significance from the neighborhood, and obstruct light (a way bigger deal than you may think when there are only 150ish sunny/clear days a year). The meeting is TONIGHT at city hall. I posted more information on the househunting instagram @househuntingblog or you can check out Save The Market Entrance on Facebook!

Views of the Majestic Theater in Streator, Illinois, July 2012.
The classic art deco cinema has had more than its share of ups and downs. The kind & gracious lady who turned on the lights for us (top) and gave us a tour is now, 9 years later, scrambling to save the building.

This is my FAVORITE of all the Deco buildings I came across in Sacramento. Capitol Plaza (1025 9th St.) is just a few blocks north of the Capitol and while the current awning makes it look a bit shabby, it’s spectacular. The blue-green colored tiles of the exterior top are gorgeous. The stores on the ground floor appear to have all their original wood doors etc. and the original entrance is there, though hidden by the awning. Also of note: It appears to me this building was probably an older one that was redone on the ‘30s with this Deco facade to look “younger.” This type of “face lift” was common. See photos that show this. -Wendy
