The town I live in has always had a special place in my heart. I moved here when I was 6 years old, and although I have spent many years away from it, I have returned and have many roots here. One of the things I love about living in a small town is no matter how far you travel around the world, you can always come back and count on the fact that you will find familiarity.
This is the Chalet , our darling little vintage family owned movie theater. It has been in our town as far back as when I first landed here in 1978, and it’s origins go even further back. Nothing about it has really changed, and that is what I love.
The movies are newer, but the face at the ticket booth is the same. The popcorn isn’t $15 dollars, nor the ticket prices. The theater boasts a beautiful ornate stage with red velvet curtains and gold gilt trim. Velvet seats still line the floor.
I really wanted to do a photoshoot, the way I see the movie theater, in it’s glory days. I enlisted my niece and her handsome friend and we contacted the owner and went over for an afternoon of shooting.
It was an absolute blast.
Here are the some of the photos from the day. I hope you enjoy seeing my little local landmark through my eyes.
See you at the movies!!
Here is a super fun shot at the wrap of the day of my Neice Kalie and her friend Doug. They really were the most awesome models for the shoot and captured my vision beautifully!
Thank you also to local business Vanity Fashion Boutique for part of the vintage wardrobe!!
Thank you both!!
