old theatre

Matt Lambros has travelled around the US, taking photos of neglected theatres.

Once thriving, a number of early 20th century theatres are now shadows of their former glory.
The ornate carvings and stunning architecture are still visible in many, but this is overshadowed by the state of disrepair that surrounds them.
US photographer Matt Lambros has made it his mission to document the sad decline of these entertainment venues.

Last year, we did something similar, but used audio in our cinema heritage project, so we applaud anyone else trying to archive these wonderful buildings.
