Thursday Doors – November 5, 2015

This one is the side/service entrance to the Neptune Theatre in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I’m not sure if there was a specific reason for the self-promotion but it sure seemed like a very original and quite eye-catching way to get their point across about the importance of live theatre within the community:


As always, thanks for looking.

    Just discovered your blog through Cee’s photography. Following now and looking forward to reading more. Here is a door by Hector Guimard who made the famous Paris Metro entrances. Best wishes from Western Australia! TJ

    Clicking on my URL in the sharing spot for some reason takes you to a much earlier post that has nothing to do with this challenge, so here is my real URL:

    I think the problem was that my URL was longer than 50 spaces, so they shortened it, but I don’t know why that takes your to the other page. Next time I’ll know enough to shorten the title! I enjoyed this challenge…Judy

    Norm, the fact you took this photo makes me happy and proud to know you. This may have not been considered by some worthy to photograph. I like how you caught the details that are so clear. From those brightly painted words I am excited about the jobs this theater provides, the performances held behind these doors and the art of theater inside are very special to me. I was in Thespians, understudy, make up girl, scenery and my Senior year, “Student Director.”Thespisns 🙂

      You’re right. When you start to think about it those terms it really is something to think of the impact a place like this can have on so many lives.

    The door certainly adds interest to what looks like a fairly drab brick building!

    Norm, I really like your door this week. Well seen and captured. I did find an interesting door while on vacation in Astoria Oregon and had to capture it for your challenge.

  25. Their advertising/artwork is covering what I would guess are some extremely bland and ugly doors. Love it!

    Have been enjoying your challenge for a while now via Janet and Manja Mexi’s posts so have leapt in myself. I used the link option and thought just my name would appear but somehow managed to stick the whole link in! sorry not sure what I did wrong there!

    and just for good measure in case it doesn’t work here is the link again!

    I love how vivid it is. ART IS MADE HERE being reinforced by the art of all the work that went into the sign itself. Nice harmony in that 🙂

    I love doors like that Norm. I think it’s important to remind people that these things (art, theater, music) don’t just happen. Bravo!

    A lot of arts funding has been cut in Canada in the last decade despite economic studies that show the very large multiplier effects of arts activities (theatre, music, visual arts, dance, video…you name it.) So this is extra advertising for Neptune Theatre on what looks to be a stage or delivery door as well as a political statement . Long live local theatre!

      Yeah no doubt the statement has political/economic implications, and it does it in an attention-grabbing way. And yes, long live local theatre 🙂
