Roxy Theater - Clarksville, Tennessee 2008

It's been a while so I thought I would publish some images I took last year to get caught up. First off are some images I took of the Roxy Theater in downtown Clarksville, Tennessee. I remember going to this theater as a child - the balcony was a prime spot from which to hurl popcorn. Growing up the theater was run-down but I've heard some restoration has been started (and done?), especially since the tornado that hit downtown shook things up a bit. I hope this theater never goes away - as is evident it's still in use and ranks right up there with the best in Americana and Deco with its classic styling. I have a special love affair with the cinema and this theater brings back much of the magic missing from most mega-complexes.

I can remember watching John Carpenter's Halloween in this theater in 1978. Thanks for sharing!
