Day 335 - The Elsinore
In 1926, "The showplace of the Willamette Valley" opened it's doors. The tudor gothic architecture quickly became recognized as the finest theater between Portland and San Francisco.
Over the years time and vandalism took its toll on the grand theater, but in the end, a dedicated group of people saved the theater from being torn down and turned into a parking lot.
I'd been watching the schedule so that I could catch a night when the theater was operating and the lights were on.
