    And now, the Pantages interior! My God that is *divine*. I love old theatres and picturehouses, and that is one of the most luxuriantly beautiful I’ve ever seen.
    Stepping into such places is for me like touching the face of God, and me an agnostic!

    I’ve heard it said he moves in mysterious ways, apparently he’s multitalented, also! Thanks very much for that, Queen V.

    Dearest V
    I was lucky enough to see an exhibition in Wellington Arch all about the amazing Blackpool Winter Gardens and Tower during their Victorian and Edwardian prime, not your period or place, but I think you’d be interested in these British Palaces of pre ‘pictures’ pleasure.
    Yours ever

    Its an Art Deco Cathedral in my opinion.Over the top,but wonderful.Can you imagine walking in and hearing the orchestra striking up.What a stir of excitement it would create,even before you were ushered to your seats.Even the picture has magic as it engages the imagination.

      Oh, this will sound so crass to you, but I have to — been there, done that! And, it’s sublime 😉

    I have looked again and this time I am reminded of a certain Sacred Peasure Dome……

      I love the photo, kind of dark luxury… Like a romantic fantasy of an oda… maybe?

    Well you know what I mean.

    Whoa! That’s a knock out! It’s like a church for the theater Gods, the ones who are into gilding. haha!

      I’ve watched a scenic painter apply gold leaf once, and you have to have *divinely* steady hands 😉

    Vickie,no not crass at all-just very,very lucky.Perhaps you could write some evocative about it.I would love to read it.Ps I have just sent you something re Lost Horizon film.

      I missed The Book of Mormon there but West Side Story is playing now and I love the Leonard Bernstein score… Next time I go to the Pantages I’ll bring my camera and do my own little (and I mean very little) photo shoot 😉
