Old Athens Theater marquee

Old Athens Theater marquee
A quaint movie house crafted out of a brick facade and corrugated metal cocoon, the Athens Theater in Athens, West Virginia was a small-town relic of yore now largely lost to obscurity. After standing vacant for many years, the theater was demolished in the late '90s along with several adjacent structures, and the site now forms a bank parking lot.

The marquee, however remains; sagely basking in the elements of an empty field.
