The Mack In Charlottetown

I love old movie marquees and Art Deco so this sign on the Mack theatre in Charlottetown caught my eye immediately but I don't think this was ever a movie house. It is one of 4 theatres in downtown Charlottetown and features cabaret style shows for up to 200 people - not as famous as the theatre showing "Anne Of Green Gables -The Musical" but still well attended!

Attractive building and eye-catching signs!

(I would love to see "Anne of Green Gables - The Musical." I would also love to visit PEI some day.)

My SIGN.

Hard to beat live theatre. In any venue.

Great capture, good to see it's being used as a theatre.

Gorgeous brick work, have to assume the inside is gorgeous too.

A cabaret show in this lovely building sounds like a great way to spend an evening.

Cool sign! I remember seeing "The Music Man" live somewhere on P.E.I. when I was twelve. I have love musicals ever since. :)

Good there is somewhere for performers to do their stuff live, and that it is well attended.

That's one of those corner buildings. I wonder what else it might have been used for. It's very attractive, and I wish the owners well for the future!

I like this one, too. There are fewer and fewer venues for live performances.

The Mack sounds like a great place to see a show Pat, not too big, so all will have a good seat hopefully!
