I think there was a theater in Wayzata, MN. My thoughts were jogged this evening as I was driving down the main street of the town. (pronounced " why - ZET' - ahh" around here).

I saw a movie marquee grafted onto the front of a new development...The old buildings and charm seem to have been scraped off the face of shoreline and replaced with new condos and a contunuous shopping mall... and to make them look like the old town, the planners seem to have grafted old parts of deceased buildings onto the new parts at street level here and there. It caused a little memory flash in the back of my mind to believe that there had once been a theater there called the "Wayzata." Are there records of it in your resources? I photographed that marquee tonight... or, is it a copy?
