Final curtain: Haunting images of abandoned theaters across the U.S.

A photographer with a passion for decaying buildings has captured a hauntingly beautiful series of images from theaters crumbling across the U.S. after the final curtain has fallen. Matt Lambros, a photographer from Brooklyn, N.Y., began creating his series of images of abandoned theaters across America in 2009.

The eerie but stunning photos show the dilapidated buildings, decaying paint and crumbling architecture — and it’s hard to believe these venues were once places of glamour and grandeur. (Caters News)
