About This Image:
I have a real soft spot for Art Deco Theaters. There is simply something in my mind which ties the golden age of movies with that particular architectural style. And it’s the era when going to the movies was an event and the theaters were ornate palaces for the people.
So often these days when you encounter an old art deco theater, it is in a sad state of repair if not outright abandoned. I am sure at one point there must have been so many of these that it seemed needless to save them. Now it feels like these old theaters must be an endangered species and I’m always thrilled to find one in a brilliant condition like this old grand dame on the streets of Mérida in the Yucatán, state of Mexico.
I was staying on the same street as the Teatro Mérida on my first trip there and passed it virtually every day. When I saw the beautiful neon lights on that old Art Deco Theater, I was determined to get a good picture of it before I left. In a week, you would think that was no big order but night after night, one thing or another came up. Either the lights weren’t on, for instance, or a large bus or truck was parked out front when they were. It became almost laughable that I was going to leave without that coveted picture!
This dusk scene of the neon lights on that beautiful art deco theater is from my last night in Mérida. Yes, that’s how close I cut it. On my last night as I headed to the zócalo, I spotted the neon lights against the deep dusk blue sky and I sped up my pace! And as you can see from this print, it was worth waiting for – what a beautiful sight!
The Teatro Mérida was originally opened in 1949 and closed as a movie theater in 1992. The Yucatan state took on the state of renovating the old art deco theater and re-opened it as an arts complex in 2000. By the time I re-visited Mérida, the old theater had been re-named the Teatro Armando Manzanero in honor of a very successful musical composer of Maya descent from the Yucatán. So, my print from that prior trip with the original name already has a bit of a vintage quality to it for those who have also walked the streets of Mérida!
Of course the lovely thing about this art deco theater print is that you can love the classic movie theater style and those great neon lights whether or not you have seen it in person! I know this print would appeal to me even if I had never had the pleasure of a beautiful night in the Yucatán.
I would love to hear what you personally find most striking about this theater print?

…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.

My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.

It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
