You'll float too.

By KingBee
From the (relatively) sublime to the ridiculous, this image of the Criterion Theatre in Bar Harbor, Maine, shot in 2016, advertises an upcoming performance by one Clint Black. Not a name I know, so had to research - the only (most likely) suggestion I could come up with is this.

For history buffs, The Criterion Theatre is described as 'a historic performance space at 35 Cottage Street in downtown Bar Harbor, Maine'. Built in 1932 when the town's summer scene was at its height, it is one of only two Art Deco theatres in the state of Maine. The theatre was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Many thanks indeed to Herbert, Joline, Graham, Tony, Alan, Dora, Richard and Colleen for their much-appreciated UAs for "Jordan Pond", and for all other interest shown in it, tangible or otherwise.

This is really wonderful and very dramatic through the dark shades and pov. It made me think of scenes in the thirties version of King Kong and the many gangster movies of those times..

Excellent shot and looked at Clint! Starred in Maverick...James Garner, had a crush on him!

Back in the room. Great image and tones and if the sky is real - fantastic, if it is faffed - fantastic! Excellent work Bob!

A little bit Bates Motel, scary but in a much better way!

Who cares whether the sky is the original or a substitute when the overall effect of the image is so good. I would say superb, if I knew how to spell it...Wink
