Curiocity: Inside The Old Hollywood Theater
Sure, it may look like a bit of an eyesore to the frequent passerby, but the history inside the Hollywood Theater in Minneapolis makes this historic landmark a true diamond in the rough.
The paint is chipping off by the second and it’d be an absolute shock if any of the exterior lights still worked. The closer you get, the more the aging flaws appear in the time-soaked walls that almost seem to struggle to maintain their foundation.
But every chip of paint and every decaying brick just adds to the immense character of the iconic cinema house. The Hollywood Theater, on 2815 Johnson St., hasn’t shown an actual film in a few decades, but the charm that was built into the movie mansion in 1935 is still very much alive.
