Yesterday on my ramble, I decided to drive to Mattoon, IL to see if I could find anything of interest. As I drove downtown on Broadway I remembered the old theater.
The Time replaced the Grand Theater which burned down in 1938. It was rebuilt in Art Deco style and renamed Time Theater. What you see is the original building, still in great shape.
It stopped showing movies in the 1980s and was transformed into a concert venue/banquet hall in 2002. It closed down a couple of years later.
I think I need to clarify the Rubbish Tuesday blog hop. Some bloggers out there seem to think it is only for posting trash, which isn't correct. Although, trash is certainly welcome if it's old and that's your cup of tea. I named it Rubbish Tuesday specifically to encompass the name of this blog, Rubbish by Roan. My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'. Anything old and/or deteriorating such as old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old. The only criteria I'm looking for is 'old'. I guess I should have named it something else, but too late now. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. My address is under the Contact tab below my header. I hope you will join in the fun.
