I spotted this graffiti on the doors of the old Triangle Cinemas building a few days ago. According to an article in the local paper that was published last summer, the building (which closed several years ago) was sold to a local church, who started to renovate it (painting it black, like all churches should), but I don’t believe the reno was ever completed. (No idea why.)
Triangle Cinemas, which had four screens when it was active, was a great theater—the first multiplex in town, if I’m not mistaken, opened in the 1980s. It was the first place I saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show at a midnight screening back in ’85 or ’86. The Tim Burton Batman movie ran for almost a YEAR there, when it was first released…
And now the building is just rotting…
I like to think the graffiti is implying that some cult is active and making use of the space at night (while all “good” people are asleep and dreaming.)
