Many thanks to KARA LONG of the darling Strand Theater in Delaware OH for sharing this great link with amazing photos.  A blazing marquee is better than fireworks!

    Great collection, and as I’ve repeated for years,

    I think that I shall never see
    a poem lovelier
    than a lit marquee.

    Except maybe a marquee on a rainy evening.
