Another piece of downtown's past is being dismantled today and tossed upon the scrap heap of history. Crews are tearing down the AMC Sundance 11 movie theater.
Ah, I remember the time I was watching Music and Lyrics there and the screen went black and it took me 20 minutes to get the attention of an usher or manager. Good times.
Who am I kidding? This isn't a huge cultural loss for the city. And it's not like there isn't another theater three blocks away -- The AMC Palace -- but the Sundance 11 was a vital part of making downtown what it is today. Kinda like the Caravan of Dreams, may it rest in peace.
Oh, well, at least we've got the Omni Hotel going up near the convention center and with the Norris Conference Centers taking the place of the Sundance 11, it'll be one neverending party downtown.
