I can never get enough of neon signs and marquees. Especially when the sign has been dark for many years and someone comes along and refurbishes a great theater like this. This is the place where I saw Star Wars for the first time. I was a senior in high school. Do the math. In 1987, it closed down. It had survived 50 years. You can read more here. A lot of businesses on the “avenue” closed down during that time and this small town in south jersey is very different from when I lived there. But then again, what hasn’t!
In case you’re wondering, this was shot handheld with my old Canon G5 camera while I was resting against a lightpole. I turned off the flash and just relaxed into the exposure.
