#555: The Third Miracle, Part One

January 31, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #554: The Disillusionist

Sorry, bit of a tease with this strip, but the first panel took me a little while to do.

The theater is the Music Box Theatre, of course. It is actually showing The Illusionist and Nora's Will at the moment. It opened in 1929 and seats about 800 people, making it a little over half the size of the Patio Theatre. The Music Box's two screens show a mix of art house, foreign, and classic movies. Its original screen was spared the fate of the Davis's and remains intact, but they have managed to add a tiny, second screen by expanding into the storefront adjacent to the theater. 

Here is a Flickr set with my reference photos of the Music Box. You can also vote at TopWebComics to see an enlarged view of panel 1.

Jason is watching The Illusionist, of course.
