The Washoe Theater, Anaconda, Montana

The Washoe was designed in 1930 by Benjamin Marcus Priteca, with interiors by Nat Smythe. It opened in 1936. My timing was off when I visited, but I need to catch a movie at it one day. The interiors are unreal, and others agree, with the Smithsonian rating as the 5th best in the country for its architectural value, and it making it on the National Register for Historic Places in 1982.
