Iris Theater at Night


This photo was taken downtown tonight. I only watched one movie at the Iris Theater before they closed, and that was Titanic. In the middle of the movie a train came through town and you couldn't hear the movie at all...

Shortly after the train, when the boat in the movie was sinking, the movie broke... and half the people in the theater got up and left because they thought the movie was over (there were only about 6 people total to begin with) =) the camera-man finally got it fixed a little later and i got to see the rest of the movie.

The theater is now home to Books & Crannies Bookstore who had the old neon sign restored to its original state back in Sept of 2008. Jim has a post of the grand re-lighting of the sign after being re-furbished here.
