Buzzfeed.com has a lovely set of images of 75 Abandoned Theatres From Around the USA that has been making the rounds on my Twitter feed. It's a set that is at once gorgeous and depressing. You can't help but imagine the former audiences rustling in their seats or chatting away before a show or a movie starts - in particular for some of the theatres designed for plays (with the seats encroaching on the stage and almost swallowing it up).
You can also be forgiven if you happen to think you see a ghost or two roaming around the debris or, as the photo above brings to mind, actually becoming one with it.
