Deco Still Lives

…in Oswego. Having attended a screening at the beautifully restored Silver Theater (now the AFI Silver) in Silver Spring, Maryland earlier this summer, I was reminded how lucky we are to still have an a deco movie theater here–a little careworn but, unlike so many others in surrounding towns, not shuttered.  The theater, built in 1941, was designed by architect John Eberson and is on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information on the Oswego Theater and other historic movie houses, please visit the Cinema Treasures website.
