Cinema

I showed you the new outside sign for the Bloor Cinema a couple of weeks ago and part of the renewal of the theatre involved restoring the Art Deco features of the interior. All the new signage is done as wonderful side-lit panels with a very Art Deco font like this one. Love it!

Been too busy lately but have been catching up today. Of all the places you have shown me, the Native Child and Family services of Toronto building is one of my favorite.
