April 29, 1950: Lobby of the Nixon Theater shortly before its doors closed.
Morris Berman, a photographer for the Sun-Telegraph, slipped into the lobby of the Nixon Theater shortly before its doors were closed for good. He made this picture, which was captioned: “The hearts of all true playgoers will immediately comprehend the full meaning of this simple, yet eloquent, silhouette of a lone patron taking a sad departure in the early dusk of evening from the Nixon lobby. Memories of almost half a century slip into the shadows.”
