The Million Dollar Theater
Excerpt From The Overlook (Photo by Wendy Werris)
The Million Dollar Theater was built in a time when the movie business showed itself off in magnificent theater palaces that lined Broadway in downtown. But it had been decades since a first run film had been projected on a screen there. Its ornate façade had been covered by a lighted marquee that for a time announced religious revivals instead of movies. Now the theater waited unused for renovation and redemption while above it a once grand office building was twelve stories of mid-grade office space and residential lofts.
