The Davis Theatre

 I love the Davis Theatre it's one of the main venues I see movies in. We used to live down the street...and since working a block away I often will go to a movie after work. The Davis was built in 1918 as a vaudeville theatre. The owners have been in the middle of a huge renovation for months. I took these pictures and what a thrill! The owners didn't know there was app organ behind a wall. The Wurlitizer will be part of of the new design and the builders and owners are adding a bar. Oh How I love movie theaters!!! This movie house is on the National Register of Historic Places.
