Grab Movie Theater

40 degrees, drizzly/rainy, foggy...great night for a ride. It's nights like this that I'm glad I run aux lights.

But worst conditions for taking a photograph. Glare was awful. Sorry about the picture quality but the theater is the white light on the right side of the pic.

Constructed in 1936 this is the Rialto Theater, Raleighs independent movie theater. They still show Rocky Horror every Friday at Midnight...and yes, I've been to it. A friend of mine who used to do makeup for GWAR also used to help out with costumes here.

Apparently the line of people milling about the curb which kept me from getting in close was there to see the 9:15 showing of "The Artist" - a 2011 release from Belguim done completely as a 1920's silent film.

Thanks for grabbing that! I've been sitting here tempted to go get the Colony or the Six Forks but REALLY didn't want to...

Keeping this just about as easy to grab, let's find a "Performing Arts Center" - someplace that does more than have bands play.

This is the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts.
http://www.progressenergycenter.com/



Any performing arts center will do, doesn't need to be a grandiose one like this. But if you grab a bar, make sure they do more than just have bands and sell drinks.

As a for instance, any academic campus theater will work. The Rialto from the last tag will work as they also host live theatrical events as well as movies. In rural areas a church or community center that hosts performance arts would meet the intent of the tag...even your kids school auditorium would get a thumbs up on this one.

I'm 800km/500 miles from home (by car and trailer yesterday) and I did 360km/220 miles on my 250cc Sherpa today.
I've got nice photos from several scenic lookouts this afternoon...

How many tags am I behind?
