Wednesday Doorway

[click image to enlarge]

These doors belong to the Wollaston Theatre, a well-loved aspect of Wollaston community life. Though closed for the past few years, this was a very fine example of a 1920s "movie house" which survived the pre-television days. The architecture is attributed to James A. Tuck of Boston. Both the exterior and interior were richly decorated as you can see by the stained glass window above the doorway. It should be considered for the National Register of Historic Places. I will share the marquis and long view in a future post.

I like the colors. I hope they will "preserve" this beautiful door. We don't have many buildings dating to the 1920s in Montpellier, which is a shame.

I am curious to see that marquise. And, I am guessing you are taking us to the circus soon? ;) Yippee

Someone should restore that theatre!
