Here are a few shots of some abandoned theaters. The top photo is from St. Louis and the other is from Detroit. They're both from a post via ArchDaily that documents these great buildings from all over the U.S. The question has become whether or not architects should take on the challenge of renovating them. I love the idea of some form of adaptive reuse. The possibilities are endless for a mixed-use type of development. The architecture is timeless. It's history. How can building that were once so vibrant not only in their purpose but also in their design, become so listless?
