56 Arbor Street: Real Art Ways


Real Art Ways is a wonderful arts venue located in the rear of 56 Arbor Street.
It offers visual and performing arts, cinema, public art, education, and live social events.

After years of fundraising, they recently replaced their old movie projectors
with new digital equipment.  As a creative art space, R.A.W. put the
old projectors out in the entry,
as a kind of industrial
art form.

I used to love those machines, now they are not more than fancy antiques...

I do like the artsy look of the old projectors here.

The reuse of the projectors fits wit the reuse of the building.

I agree with the others, love the old projector! Artsy they are and they do indeed fit with the reuse of the building!! Great captures for the day as always! Hope you're getting ready for a great weekend, Jack!! Enjoy!!

A great idea and good reuse of these well-used machines.

Just think of the thousands of films we have seen projected with equipment just like this. Wonderful. The switch to digital equipment has put many theaters out of business.

Wow, I wonder how many movies passed through these projectors...

The projectors have real character.

Our region's last non-digital theater recently closed...heaven knows what became of its projectors. These look lovingly and beautifully restored.
