Academy Uptown Bowling Lanes

Academy Road (1931).

Man, I would kill to see what’s left of the old movie theatre behind the interior bowling alley facades.

I think I was born around 20 years too late. I really feel like I missed out on something fantastic with these old neighborhood movie theaters.

Come to think of it, I think I might have been born about 70 years too late, because it would have been nice to live in Winnipeg when its collective psyche was a little more positive than it is today (typhoid victims asside, I suppose).

On the other hand, maybe I should have been born in Pittsburgh.
