Crescent City, California
On last year's trip there were half a dozen active theaters in Southern California, then very little through the central corridor. Several had closed recently, sad in itself, but also frustrating that I wasn't there in time to cover them. So this theater, just north of the big redwoods park area at the far northwest corner of the state, was a treat to find. It's very old, late 40s, and essentially original in structures. It didn't look exactly prosperous, but definitely up and running. It had been more than a day since I'd reached a theater to photograph, very unusual on the trip, so it was great to locate it and see how different the setting looked from the theaters in the south of the state.
