25 March 2013, Day 293

I love old movie theaters and find it so sad when they sit empty and deteriorating like the magnificent Uptown Theater at Broadway and Lawrence. The former Morse Theater, which originally opened in 1912, was built on a much humbler scale than the Uptown, but it is has had much more success in recent years. Although it's no longer a movie theater, it was restored and remodeled as a live music venue in 2008, with a comfortable and well-appointed interior and the original terra cotta trim on the facade. Now known as the Mayne Stage, it's a great asset to the neighborhood, to music lovers, and to the streetscape.
