The Crest Theater here in Sacramento is indeed a jewel of a structure. It hosts both fims and various live performances. This was a GREAT exercise in VALUE control. I worked from a reference photograph and painted on a half sheet of 140lb. cold press watercolor paper.

Wow! This looks like van Gogh's The Night Café. Only much more celebratory. Lovely light.
