orpheum

A very hot & humid day - all those grey clouds held the promise of rain but didn't deliver. I took this photo on State Street yesterday - this is the Orpheum Theatre, a beautifully restored old cinema. The lobby houses an excellent restaurant, the cinema shows a good mix of films (mostly independent) and they also host a lot of music and community events. If you enlarge the photo you can see the billboard says "Divorce Your Car" - 5 people ceremoniously dumped their cars at the Orpheum this week and resolved to use public transportation (gasp!) and the Community Car service which I postedhttp://madisondailyphoto.blogspot.com/2007/04/earth-day-preview.html about a couple of months ago.
