Old theater

Once again, for my next NaNoDrawMo sketch, I’ve returned to Michigan.  This is based from my own photo of an old style movie theater.  It is in Lapeer, Michigan.  It’s a small town that is the county seat in the area in which I grew up.  I saw Gone with the Wind here when it was re-released to theaters (probably the 1967 one).

    Love the sketch! Old theaters are great. Does this one have one of those wonderful decorated ceilings? We had one where we grew up that had stars that lit up when the lights were turned down. It is in such a crappy neighborhood now, but I would love to see the inside of it and sketch it.
