The Highland Theatre in Nob Hill

The marquee of the Highland Theatre in Nob Hill evokes memories of when my Mom took us to see the Albuquerque premiere of "Superman" and of going with my brother and cousin to see a re-release of "Young Frankenstein." I shot some video of the marquee many years ago for a video I was working on at the time. I haven't completed that piece yet, but I will sometime. I was concerned that the Highland or the marquee would be taken down. Last Saturday I saw it lit up so beautifully on a cloudy evening that I wanted to shoot it again, in still images. Driving from this area, west along Central, was a beautiful view of neon lit Route 66.
