    • Photograph inside the closed Victory Theatre in Holyoke (MA)
      • "The Victory Theatre (in stone on building, spelled "re") is a theater in Holyoke, Massachusetts. It was built in 1920 by the Goldstein Brothers Amusement Company. The architecture is in the Art Deco style and is considered the last of its type between Boston and Albany. The theater closed in 1979 and has sat derelict since then. However the Holyoke City Council, owners of the theater, have agreed to hand ownership of the theater to the non-profit Massachusetts International Festival of the Arts. The group hopes to restore and open the theater to performances in 2016."

The Game Farm is still closed today." but we will be able to walk the grounds, go into the cages, walk into the Giraffe house, the Rhino house, Kodak film selling yellow stores, see the mini-golf - great place for a photo shoot, a snapshot into the past of this historic landmark.
