Yost Theater

Here is an example of a building that is noteworthy almost entirely because of its marquee entrance. The theatre exterior features a flat neo-classical style. While the interior features some more art-deco flourishes, particularly in the light fixtures, tin tile ceiling, and heavy red draperies. It is the marquee in front, with its glorious neon, with its shades of red, blue, and pink, that makes the building well renowned. (2017)
