Linden Circle Theatre

Ask Vance posted this article about the Linden Circle Theatre in Memphis.  I used to drive by this location daily, and once you know it used to be a movie theatre, you can see subtle hints of its former use.  Once I make my massive fortune through door-to-door brush sales, I am going to buy some of the remaining theatres still standing, and convert them back to their original purpose.
