DrWeb says: A new way to view cinema, opening soon in downtown Las Vegas… as perspective, here’s an image of “Interior, box office, Alabama Theatre, Birmingham, Alabama,” and here’s the notes from the Library of Congress on the Alabama Theatre:

“The Alabama Theatre was built in 1927 by Paramount Studios as an Alabama showcase for Paramount films. It was used primarily as a movie palace for 55 years, with the exception of the annual Miss Alabama pagent and the weekly Mickey Mouse Club. In 1987, the owners of the facility declared bankruptcy and the theatre was purchased by Birmingham Landmarks Inc., a non-profit corporation.”

“I think a lot of that [knowledge loss] happened post-World War II, when it kind of got to two people in the family both in the workplace and the convenience of buying things,” Potter says, “And there is that Space Age excitement of the modern, you know, go to the store and buy something.”In pursuit of restoring this lost kitchen knowledge, Potter has written a new book, “Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Cooks, and Good Food — Second Edition.” The book talks about how to make sour cream, chocolate bars, rolled oats and vanilla extract, all from scratch. It also includes a number of science experiments related to cooking, some of which can be performed right in your own home kitchen.
