Alameda Theatre

Timothy Pflueger designed this theater for the Nassar brothers and it opened in 1932 during the depression years.  The exterior caught my eye as the late afternoon sunlight bleached the softer columns and curves of the facade.  Restored in 2008, the building stands proud on Central Avenue and viewable from Park Street, and contains a wonderful set of interior spaces and details.
