Here is the Damm Theatre (no, nothing wrong with it) in Osgood, IN. Check out the front marquee on this gem. The Damm opened in 1921 originally under the name Columbia Theatre. This theatre has been recently restored.

Here is the Apollo Theater of Oberlin, OH. The Apollo is shutting down sometime in July 2009 for renovations. The Oberlin College is overseeing the work to ensure that the work will go well. Much of the interior of the theatre is original and the marquee is a great sight to see at night.

The Apollo Theater originally opened in 1913 and the Oberlin College took over ownership after the single-screener had been family owned for 85 years. More information can be found at The Morning Journal. 07-09
