What a creepy-ass movie this was. Have you seen it?
Now that I've got that out of the way, let the ranting commence.
I was at Warren Theater a while ago, because if you were at all paying attention, I pretty much hated the first picture I posted and felt compelled to go out and get another shot.
I'm beginning to learn "free country" doesn't necessarily co-exist well with "free market". Because once again, I was approached and told I was not allowed to take pictures in an establishment. Like me and my stupid iPhone camera that can't take decent pictures from more than 8 inches away (hence all the close-ups, not that this is a bad thing) poses a significant threat to all the people in there going to watch a movie. Or more to the point, it poses a threat to Warren Theater's business model. In fact, I was so menacing looking that it took two employees to tell me that I wasn't allowed to snap photos.
This isn't the first time this has occurred since I started my project. Nor was it the second. I've quit telling people I'm taking the pics for an art project. Firstly, they don't believe me and secondly, they don't care. I can't believe I haven't been nailed in Wal Fart, although I'm sure I will be at some point.
So, my goal in life since I have an anti-authority streak in me: I'm going to take pictures with reckless abandon every time I'm in Warren Theater. I urge you to do the same.
On a completely different note, I love Art Deco architecture and the Warren has employed that look, as you can see above. It works really well here. But on a huge stretch of land sitting right next to a major interstate and having been constructed in 2008, as is the Warren? Well, it seems a bit...incongruous. Especially when there's a Furr's cafeteria and a Harley Davidson dealership right next door. ->
