I took a few photos at Saturday’s Fox gala and, at the risk of setting back the cause of photojournalism through my fuzzy, poorly composed images, decided to risk sharing ’em.
Above is the marquee as seen during the dedication ceremony. Wow!
This is the theater post-dinner. Too dim to give you much of a view, but you get a sense of it.
This is the view from the mezzanine. Pipe the grand staircase and the ornate carpet.
The Fox balcony is bigger than a lot of entire theaters these days.
The rooftop deck overlooking Garey Avenue was a convivial place and provides a new angle on the tower sign.
At right, the VIP deck, which most of us will likely never tread again. Wonderful while it lasted, though.
Now that you’ve suffered through my attempts at photography, make sure to read my special column in Monday’s (!) newspaper about the event, in which I play to my strengths by using, y’know, words and punctuation and stuff.
You can also find a boatload of photos at REN’s Images of Pomona blog. Scroll down his page to find ’em all. Your columnist/blogger even pops up in one, in a characteristic pose. They give a good view of the scene outside.
