The economy has affected one of my favorite vintage venues, The Plaza Theater on Bumby. According to the Sentinel, the performing company operating out of the theater cancelled its entire 2009 season. The Plaza will continue, however, to host concerts and special events. Let's hope they can hang in there, it would be a shame to lose this place.
Here is video of the Plaza's wonderful rotating sign. It was the first thing I shot when I bought my camera, so it is rather crude.
