Sunday 2100 hrs. Moviegoers approach Vinegar Hill Theater, one last time. A very different experience than the multi-screen, acres of asphalt Movieplex.

Not the place you go to see Wolverine. Human scale. Vinegar Hill Theater manager James Ford thanked long time supporters in advance of Frances Ha, the final movie.

  1. Love the way you captured this bit of Cville history, Bill.

  2. Oh no, so sad. Quit my 3:30-midnight job at the Post Office in 1985 (ish?) because a Truffaut film was playing at the Vinegar Hill Theater and I was sick and tired of never being able to go to any good movies. Remember seeing Allegro non Troppo at Vinegar Hill. Oh no.
