  • I thought it was great. It doesn't look too well taken care of and most the theaters are quite old, but I think that's all part of the charm. Walking down we could see all the shows and people will stand out sometimes and meet you. I MET TOM HANKS!! and by MET I mean - we walked by as he was coming out of his show and managed to snap pictures of him. That was pretty cool. :)
  • an important part of American History
