    Massive Theater Converted Into Magnificent Bookstore

    Massive Theater Converted Into Magnificent Bookstore - My Modern Metropolis

    This is not only gorgeous but a marvelous way to save and convert old movie palaces. So many of these vintage structures have been demolished over the years and it’s delightful to see one not only spared but retaining its beauty and splendor plus remaining as a viable and lucrative business.

    Wow, what a building! Imagine book browsing in there!

    Reminds me of the old central lending library in Leicester :-

    only on a much grander scale.

    The first three nooks look the most cozy & inviting to me but the 5th photo, the Royal Portuguese Reading Room, is awesome!

    You post the coolest stuff! I will share this with my cat-loving friends & family. My daughter feeds 7 feral cats, two of which she caught in a cage, took them to the local shelter, had them neutered so they wouldn't produce more feral kittens and then brought them home. They are Dusk and Dawn. I get to feed them all when my daughter goes to the desert to do her photography. (on Facebook, Photos From Below Sea Level) They're all pretty tame when I go over there.

    Kudos to your daughter, ZAP! Are the cats still mostly feral or has she been able to domesticate them by degrees?
