Photograph taken at the Hershey Theater, Hershey PA.
Not available in another gallery


autopsy theater
out of time
the way of the future
demolition by neglect
when the show finally started
the long road home
raison d'etre
nothing ever dies
a certain kind of emptiness
the way it all works out
that which is real within
beside you in time
so cheap
even if it's just for the day


Photo comment By Jean: Hershey Theatre is not abandoned. It is a magnificent piece of architecture built by Mr. Hershey. The interior is awesome. The theater hosts Broadway shows and other first class shows. When was this taken?
Photo comment By matthew christopher: you are correct. this gallery section is 'not all is lost' (as in, not everything on my site is abandoned) and the places in it are all in use. i agree, the interior is pretty spectacular. i would guess at this point that this photograph is about 5 years old.
