Thriving theatres of the early 20th century look a shell of their former selves in these photos - taken years after the curtains came down for the last time.  Photographer Matt Lambros documented the sad decline of America's glitzy entertainment venues - many of which hosted popular Vaudeville acts.<br />
<br />
The ornate carvings, intricate murials, and stunning architecture are still visible in many of the grand auditoriums.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
