Abandoned theatres

Found this amazing site of images of abandoned theatres by Julia Solis.

The empty, decayed stages framed by proscenium arches, remind me of  fireplaces. Using the space inside to create a framed theatre space, used to project images and stories.  Shadows in the fire like Platos cave. The traditional theatre and the fireplace space hold vibrant images, senses of illusion, memories even when old and  left to decay. Nostalgic times of entertainment, the flickering fire holds our attention, still a primal instinct through film, tv and todays screen based technology. From our need to have warmth and light in the darkness.
