There were photo murals and reproductions of old movie posters and other expressions of optimism posted on this old theatre, but on the second level a fire door had been kicked in from the fire escape so long ago that the unrepaired damaged was rusty and decaying.
Dear Youngstown, thank you for your incredible industrial service to our country and the world. You taught us how to make amends and treat workers responsibly, win world wars and cold wars, and make us feel so small like children in watching your immense steel production facilities hiss and roar like something only Mother Nature could create. But it was the will of men who created you Youngstown, and it was the will of men who destroyed you. In Youngstown, we made steel.And you died too soon.
And that video was awesome, JRC. I'd love to get a DVD of that.
