I was walking down the street, minding my own business, well, maybe not completely minding my own business, anyway, I looked up and saw these people on the second floor looking out the window at me. I was almost a block away but still had to back up to see again what I thought I just saw. Yep, there they were, bigger than life. Thank goodness for zoom lenses.

This is the second floor of the Main Street theater, also known as the Empire theater. Opened in 1921, it is on the National Register of Historic Places. Today it is run by AMC and claims to be one of the most technologically advanced theaters in the world.

The past saw entertainers such as Cab Calloway, Charlie Chaplin, Sir Henry Lauder, the Marx Brothers, and Olson & Johnson. An underground tunnel runs from the theater to the nearby President Hotel. In the day it was supposed to be used for the entertainers to enter from their dressing rooms, but rumor has it that it saw more use as an escape route during the prohibition for bootleggers to escape the enforcers.
