The Theater in The Blob, Guest Blog

My son Mark sent me this photo he took with his phone. He’s on business. He said I could use it as a guest blog today. Thanks, Mark. I have to watch this classic film again. Here is the theater from the movie The Blob filmed in 1958. Phoenixville PA.

More info on The Blobthe blob says it’s the screen debut of Steven McQueen

  5. What a fantastic shot! Love the foreboding sense of evening mist over that bright, funky facade . . .
