Lafayette Theater

My Town (Suffern, NY) has a great old theater in the center of town. The Lafayette was built in 1924 and has been fully refurbished inside by the town. All fall they run classic movies on Saturday mornings, besides the current films. They even have an organist playing the old Wurlitzer organ.

I drive by the theater almost every night. Tonight I decided to get a photo of it all lit up. I am glad I did. The old place looks pretty good!

Everyone should have a beautiful old theatre in their lives/midst. I have one! I stumbled upon your blog through our shared like of 'Office Space.' Damn it feels good to be a gangster!

Hi Nan-

Thanks for visiting. My only issue with the old theater is the seats while re-done are the originals and not nearly as comfortable as some of the new ones, but I love the expeience. Recently I saw Road to Morocco and Treasure of the Sierra Madres there and it was fun!

Funny about Office Space. I manage an IT Department. I bought a bunch of Red Staplers and give them out to staff for a job well done. We make a big deal out of it and everyone gets a kick out of it.

wow, Mamma Mia has made it to Suffern? Please post more Suffern photos - I've got my hometown on a Google alert.

Hmmm Suffern as a subject. I shoot a lot in Harriman State Park. I'll think about what I'd like to shoot in Suffern and start posting them once in a while.

Thanks for checking out my blog.

I have visited the theater a couple of times and really enjoyed the matinees on Saturday. Perhaps a Fall visit will find me back there. But this next time it is "bring a pillow for the bum!!"
