Dave? Dave's Not Here

Spent the evening last night with Cheech and Chong. Of course The Husband was there too, so we weren't alone. Actually lots of folks were there. They did a show at the State Theater in Cleveland.

Totally hilarious.

I've always enjoyed their humour. I remember one time in high school we went to the Jesse James Drive-In Theater for a triple feature Cheech and Chong movie festival. Wait - no actually I don't remember much of that!

It was great to see them back together again.

Anywho... I thought you might like to see some of the beautiful architectural detail and lights in the theater. Built in the 1920's, it is a marvel. Part of the Playhouse Square District containing the Ohio Theater, Hanna Theater, Allen Theater, Palace Theater and of course the State!


The outer lobby

The Spirit of Cinema - America. One of four murals called The Four Continents by James Daugherty which were recently restored. It is so wonderful that time is taken to preserve what artists have created. This mural was featured on Life Magazine's cover February 27, 1970 and helped to spur support for its renovation

Inner lobby

Hard to believe some idiot planned to tear it all down at one point

Come with us next time!
