Eastown Theater II

A continuation of yesterday’s post on the Eastown theater in Detroit. The view from the balcony was spectacular, with the solitary red chair on the floor being too perfect a subject to resist.



Sad Chair

  1. Love this!!! That little chair all alone gives scale and a sense of desolation! Nice work!

      The irony of the chair is that I don’t think it is “native” to the theater, but rather dumped there for whatever reason. And that must have been a hell of a place to see a movie. Did you ever see live music there?

      • After Googling the place, I’m thinking I mixing it up with another one of the the grand theaters that had been in the area. I saw plenty of concerts in the Michigan Palace, which was spectacular!

  3. This really is the best shot of this location I’ve seen. I didn’t get anything worthwhile out of this place!

      Thanks, IP. I’m sure you’ve got something decent, but you won’t know it until you look at your pictures a year from now.

      • I’ve got one halfway decent picture from here, but seriously, nothing this nice.

  4. The red chair does it! Simplicity at its best. Great shot

      Thanks, Cynthia! For a shot that was just kind of incidental, it turned out to be a favorite.
