Acadia Theatre’s Classic Neon Splendor!

aDSC_1713

I like vintage signs a great deal, especially classic neon displays that have been well preserved.  These shots taken yesterday show The Acadia Theatre in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, which is graced with a magnificent masterpiece of neon and signage art above its entryway.   The triangular sign juts out from the building’s facade with “ACADIA” in bright yellow on two sides and white and yellow neon accent lines all around and a bold neon yellow star encircled atop the front.

Built in 1911, this Annapolis Valley theatre has been through several incarnations and now houses a cinema and stage for community theatre (the Al Whittle Theatre), a film society (the FundyFilm Society), a local coffee shop / cafe (Just Us!) and an art gallery (Jack’s Gallery).  More info can be obtained at the Acadia’s site here.

Visit to Wolfville, Nova Scotia and Surrounding Area

In late September, my wife and I visited Nova Scotia and spent most of our time around Wolfville and the surrounding area in the Annapolis Valley region of the province.  Wonderful time spent exploring Nova Scotia’s farm country so close to the sea.  Some of our pics below.
