Keeping Cool at the Movies

It’s been unbearably hot this past week and one cool place to go is the movies. Three of the grandkids and I went to the movie theatre to see Toy Story 4.  We took turns sitting in the chair of this cardboard commercial for an upcoming movie.

 When I was a kid I loved reading Charles Addams cartoons in a big book we had in our house.

Movie Ticket Stubs from the Sixties

Who knows why I glued these into a leather bound scrapbook all those years ago? Who knows why I still have the scrapbook?

Throwback Thursday post.

Vampire’s Assistant at Midway Theatre, Forest Hills, Queens

A theatre lit up at night attracts my eye. (Is it theater or theatre? This sign ends in tre) I see theaters transformed and repurposed all the time so want to preserve the genre before they all disappear.

I shot the Midway Theatre  when I visited my sister in NYC and we went out to Queens on the subway to meet friend Matt and eat at Just Like Mother’s Restaurant. You can read a blog about the mostly Eastern European fare, see some Borscht-  if you click on the name.

I took this about three years ago (11/2009) but came across it when I was looking for a response to a weekly challenge and since theaters are a vanishing breed, I like to photograph them, read what’s playing.  Thought this was an interesting selection.  Always like to work on my night photography and think about how I would change the settings next time.
