James wrote that “movies are magic” and spoke about going to the theater as a boy. That resonated with me. Here are some pictures of the recently restored movie palace in my home town, Miami Oklahoma. This is where I first encountered “Movie Magic.”
Built in 1929, the Coleman Theater has reportedly never been dark.
It’s style and beauty was breathtaking, as befitted the worlds that unfolded on it’s screen.
Maybe we are so profoundly influence by such beauty and imagination that it shapes our lives.
And the multimedia experience makes anything less … incomplete.
I feel fortunate to know that this movie palace of my childhood has been respected, nurtured and restored by a loving community. More information, photos and my thanks to: colemantheatre.org
