- Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer
The Colonie Coliseum, also known as the Starlite Music Theatre, was operational in Latham, NY, from 1958-1997. Headlining a variety of stars from Wayne Newton, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash to Mike Tyson, George Carlin and Megadeath, the Coliseum seated 1,800 people comfortably in a unique partially exposed amphitheater. Changing hands multiple times over its almost 40-year history, it finally closed for good in 1997 and was left untouched until its demolition in November 2012.
Photographing abandoned places is a particular interest of mine. I have my complete albums available online at www.chamberdoorart.com.
