This morning I got news that the Georgia Theatre in Athens had undertaken extensive damage on the inside from a fire that started on the second floor. This occurs a week before AthFest, a festival which will have a new meaning this year.
During my first month as a staff photographer for The Red & Black I was assigned to take this portrait of the Georgia Theatre’s new owner, Wilmot Greene. He had just completed a fairly large renovation of the second floor area including the bathrooms. I figured I would post this in honor of the Theatre today.
