Gorgeous Art Deco Theater in Merida - Mexico At Night
Photograph - Photo Art
On my first trip to Merida, I was there for a week and I spotted this beautiful old Art Deco theater on pretty much day one because I was staying down the same street. I passed it daily. And I was on the look-out for a chance to photograph it with its beautiful neon lights in action. Each day there seemed to be a stumbling block, like perhaps a vehicle blocking it or the lights were simply off at the time of night when the dusk blue skies reign.
Finally, on the last night, my tenacity was rewarded. At dusk, the streets were clear, the skies were golden, and the old neon lights were in full swing at the Teatro Merida! What an awesome going away present this was!
I'm still a bit short on details about this beautiful art deco beauty, but I did read that it was renovated and re-opened in 2000, so several years before my visit to Merida. It's so awesome that this city keeps its heritage alive! Would the world be a little grayer without a little glamor from days gone by?
