What if treasures were under your nose?
I read about this on Gawker. When photographer Kevin Shea Adams found out that his East Village bodega was shutting down, he started to poke around the big brick building it was housed in, only to discover that upstairs was an abandoned movie theatre that had been used as a storeroom. The Hollywood Theatre shut its doors in 1959, but it still retained the beautiful
inlays, balconies and woodwork throughout the years. These photos almost look like old ruins– they’re beautiful and poetic and they remind us that there are hidden gems all around us. Check out the gallery of the Hollywood Theatre here.
