Famous Arches

No, it's not an Orange Theme Day...
But the inside of Radio City Music Hall .
Built in the 30's, it was for decades a great place for movies, concerts
and of course the home of the Rockettes .
Before becoming our beloved Atticus , Gregory Peck was a usher here.
I would have loved having him showing me my seat!...

Non, Orange n'est pas le theme du mois,
ceci est l'interieur de Radio City Music Hall.
Construit au debut des annees 30, il a ete pendant 50 ans un cinema
puis un lieu de concert . Son spectacle de Noel reste un classique de NY.
Avant de devenir celebre Gregory Peck y a ete "placeur"
J'avoue que je n'aurais pas deteste qu'il m'indique mon siege!...

moi ça me fait penser à des rideaux dans une navette spatiale mais il est vrai que j'ai une imagination débordante, je crois voir même des petits hommes verts qui se baladent entre les franges. :-))
Bonne journée et meilleures pensées

STUNNING! woo-hoo! That was one thing I really wanted to do and didn't during my trip a year & half ago. I enjoyed watching the video of the Rockettes while waiting to go up to Top of the Rock. So a return trip soon is a must.

Pour être orange, c'est orange !
Au niveau arches, je préfère celles du sud de L'Utah dont la jolie délicate.
Moi j'aurais préféré que ce fut Mac Queen qui me place.
J'ai lu pour ta jeune soeur, c'est terrible.

Saw the title before the photo, and hoped it would be those OTHER golden arches...

These are fantastic. I went to Radio City Music Hall as a kid, but not since.

Whoa! I didn't expect the interior to look like this. Wow!

A visionary architect in the 30's! Gorgeous shot!
Cool information regarding Gregory Peck! :-)

I would NEVER have guessed RCMH! That's just gorgeous. You know I love the color! :) Gregory Peck was a fine actor and a fine man.

Way cool. Well done. I had a huge crush on GP my whole life. I still stay lup late to watch one of his movies.

Now that is orange! Nice job, Marie-Noyale! I've been by the building but never inside. My loss, it looks like. Next time in NYC!

T. Becque April 14, 2010 at 9:58 PM  

That's very cool. Love the orange.

Very nice composition. I never would have guessed it was Radio City Music Hall.

il y a un film de Woody Allen ou il raconte son enfance (j'ai zappe le nom du film) et un moment sa tante l'invite voir un film dans "Radio City Music Hall" , reconstruction magnifique, cela devait etre un magnifique cinema. Belle photo, super graphique.

Excellente approche graphique du lieu... et j'adore le petit rappel historique sur les débuts de Gregory Peck dans l'univers du spectacle!

Comme quoi tout mène à tout à condition d'en sortir !

Il y a aussi..There is also...
