Some of The Pics From The Sidewalk Film Festival

A couple of weeks ago Allison and I volunteered at the Sidewalk Film Festival here in Birmingham. It's a great event and is worth the effort to attend. We worked Sunday afternoon in the ticket booth at the Alabama Theater and in exchange we had passes for Saturday and Sunday's movies. We saw quite a few cool movies and also got to just hang out and enjoy the atmosphere. One of the great things about this event is that they usually open the old Lyric Theater to visitors. I'm looking forward to them getting all the asbestos removed so I can volunteer to help with the restoration of this great historical theater. I'll have some pictures of the inside of the auditorium up in a day or so. In the meantime enjoy the first round of pics from this place.

Walking from where we parked I saw this view and liked it so I shot it.

Zoomed in on the two nice older buildings in the background.

The floor of one of the offices in the the Lyric building.

Same room, different angle. I love to get these low angle floor shots when the floor has some kind of interesting texture or design.

Allison in the restroom lobby of the Alabama Theater which is across the street from the Lyric. The Alabama is a great historical theater itself and has done quite well since its restoration many years ago. The Lyric is owned by the same people and will be a great compliment to the Alabama due to the difference in the sizes of the two auditoriums.

Another view of Allison taking a break from walking.

Looking at the Alabama Theater from one of the offices in the Lyric building.

Looking up at the Alabama's sign from the sidewalk.

Stay tuned there's more pics to come.
