Today's episode of Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me on NPR was broadcast from (or maybe just recorded at) The Victoria Theater in Dayton, Ohio - my hometown!
Back in High School, my boyfriend and I used to go to what was then the Victory Theater and attend midnight movie double-features. These included such classics as Friends followed by Harold & Maude. And not Friends, the TV show, people, Friends, the movie, from back before any of those TV show people were even born. You know, classics.
When I was going to the movies there, it was not this pretty. In the mid-70s, they made the demolish-versus-save decision and it was happily saved and refurbished. Isn't it a beautiful building now? But the inside, oh, the inside is magnificent. I am still looking for photos of the beautiful theater itself.
I'll be back later today with some stamping, I hope. I get to go to work tomorrow morning, and I need to be there by 4:30 am, so I've got to do 'everything else' today, as I figure tomorrow will be sorta weird. Getting home at 8:00 am does that to a person. If I don't return today, remember that today is Vote Earth Day. At 8:30 pm local time, wherever you live on Planet Earth, you can vote for Earth by switching off your lights for one hour - EARTH HOUR. DO IT! You will not be sorry!
