New York Movie Theatre

Another article from NYTimes.com:

Evidently, the Metro movie theatre, long empty, is set to become an Urban Outfitters. While, on the surface, the good news is that the gorgeous Art Deco exterior will be preserved, the tragedy is that the fabulous interior was gutted about a year ago.

This makes me weep, not just for the glorious cinemas of the past, but as another indication of the contempt for historic architecture that seems so prevalent.

My opinion, of course.
