This is a wonderful example of a 1940s neighborhood movie theater that has survived almost intact into the present day. I photographed it with a 50s Bolsey Jubilee camera and printed it onto hand coated paper. I attached it to a canvas panel which I's painted with acrylics and then glued a silver gelatin print onto the canvas. I finished off the image with a little blue colored pencil and some Kamar varnish.
