NOTE TO READERS CONCERNING NEWER POSTINGS: WHILE WORDPRESS’S NEW EDITOR DOES NOT PERMIT YOU SIMPLY TO CLICK ON AN IMAGE IN ORDER TO SEE A LARGER VERSION, YOU MAY STILL EFFECTIVELY DO SO BY RIGHT-CLICKING ON AN IMAGE AND SELECTING “OPEN LINK IN A NEW TAB.” YOU THEN JUST LOCATE THE NEW TAB AT THE TOP OF YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN AND LEFT-CLICK ON IT. VOILA!
NOTE: Apart from other adjustments I’ve made to these images, I’ve darkened them a bit.
The New Regal, intended for live performance legitimate theater, appears much better lighted than the old Avalon was, which I remember always as more mysterious than current photos show.
Arabian Nights was its original architectural concept, and it certainly reflected that in every aspect.
There are a number of other pictures – both vintage and modern – on my site of the Avalon. To see them use the search box at the bottom right of the page.
