In this incredible black and white photograph by Sébastien Barré, we see the inside of the abandoned Starlite Music Theater in Latham, New York. The building shut down in 1997, ending a 40 year run that saw entertainers such as Bob Hope, Milton Berle, Wayne Newton, Tom Jones and Eddie Murphy perform on its stage [Source].

In the years after, the abandoned building deteriorated, attracting a new audience—urban explorers. And on November 15, 2012, demolition began and the building no longer remains. To see more photos of the abandoned theater before it was destroyed, check out the complete album by Sébastien Barré on Flickr.
