Scott Neff took these photos in Lincoln NE. He didn't even tell me where he was in Lincoln when he took them. Maybe he can give details when he gets back from Portland.

Yep. It sure looks like a mystery to me. I guess the photographer will have to be the one to answer it.

Man alive I was in Lincoln like a year and a half ago...

I think this was north of Downtown Lincoln on my way to take pictures of the Douglas Eastpark.

This may be the remains of the Cooper 70 which was just west of 56th and O. This beautiful house was bult in the early 70's as a single screen large (800+) seat house. It was then turned into a twin and was closed the last time I knew anything about it.

Oddly enough, that sounds about right.

And yes -- thanks to the marvels of Google Earth, I pin-pointed the building, and it so happens to be just west of 56th on O.

The Cooper/Lincoln opened in May 1967.

According to publicity at the time of its opening, the theater sat 810, had a parking lot that could accommodate 300 vehicles, was the first 70mm-equipped venue in the city of Lincoln, and featured "multi-track theatre stereo of unusually fine fideltity." The debut attraction was "The Sound Of Music".
