Warner Theater

The Warner Theater in Torrington is a restored 1932 movie theater and performance venue.  It is down the street from yesterday's mural.  I like the art deco sign.  The Warner Theater has a pretty active schedule of events.  The theater plays a significant role in the arts of northwestern Connecticut.

 
The City Daily Photo website has been hacked.  The developers are working to restore it, but it might not be operable by the time of the April 1 theme day.  Julie has put up a temporary blog to host the theme day posts, for which the April theme is "cobblestones."  If the main City Daily Photo website is not ready by April 1, and you are a City Daily Photo blogger who wants to post to Julie's temporary blog, please go here on April 1.

I just love the sign and the clever perspective!

A dizzying perspective. Love old movie theatres, but some in our fair Twin Cities are a bit worn and shabby.

My favourite kind of venue to see alternative movies Jack (and by alternative I mean foreign haha!)Love the angle you've taken with this one, suits the subject perfectly.
btw did I not mention that drinks at noon in The National Hotel are always followed by a duel or two!!

A sign like this, which certainly should be preserved, probably requires having been grandfathered from modern sign ordinances.

That really says 'America and movies' to me. Lovely. Gosh, I hope no-one ever hacks my blog. I wouldn't know what to do!
