This historic movie theatre in Falls Church, Viriginia, which was converted to a concert venue, is closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

A beautiful look into history, Mike!
That is, history as I saw it in American films and series.
Movie theaters were nothing like this when I grew up over here. Unfortunately.

Interesting photo with a literal sign of the times on an historic building that I'm sure brings back memories for a lot of us. On the one hand I agree with Binnur's recommendation. On the other hand given the subject matter the sign being the brightest point in the image and the locked doors being in deep shadow is rather fitting. Nicely seen and captured.

That was my thinking behind my initial go at the post-processing. After seeing Binnur's idea, I changed the tone curve to brighten the mid tones without changing the darkest or brightest tones. That decreased the mid-tone contrast which unknowingly at least to me had been a distraction from the sign. The revision still overall has sufficient contrast and the sign still nicely stands out.
