Regent Theater mural by José Narezo


2017 photo100 – #91

I’m a bit perplexed on the copyright on this one; the mural was painted by José Narezo but I captured this image of it. So I went with a copyright on this image of the mural.

The mural is painted on the rear exterior wall of the historic Regent Theater in my home town of Allegan Michigan. The Regent is a art deco style opened in 1919 in a former horse livery. It is run by a non-profit and is in use as a first-run movie theater.

These wonderfully warm tones are controls on a 1950s Peerless Simplex XL movie projector. This meticulously restored unit now adorns the lobby of my hometown movie theater, The Regent, in Allegan MI.

You’d make that face too if you had a mic stuck up your nose.

My first rock concert – Boston at Wing’s Stadium in Kalamazoo (yes folks, there really is a Kalamazoo). I borrowed the ‘big lens’ (135mm) from the school and then wormed my way down to the floor in front of the band.

My ears rang for days.

The Freedom Train visited Kalamazoo, MI in July 1975. I was still shooting with my Dad’s old Pony 135 in those days.
