New York City-based photographer Matt Lambros has put together a blog called After The Final Curtain, where he creates "photographic obituaries" documenting "the effects of years of neglect and decay in some of America's greatest theaters."

Abandoned architecture has fascinated me since I was five years old. My grandmother used to take my brother and I in to investigate any old barn she happened to drive past. She was curious about what was left behind, and her inquisitive nature made a lasting impression on me.

Permission to use the above image was granted by Matt himself.
