DANLEY TH-MINI SUBS CITED AS THE CINDERELLA LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEM AT BUTLER UNIVERSITY’S HINKLE FIELDHOUSE

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA – OCTOBER 2009: Butler University’s Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis is the antithesis of the modern NBA showplace. It’s gritty. It’s not air-conditioned. The seats, or rather bleachers, are uncomfortable at best. But with an 80-year history at the epicenter of both high school and college basketball in a state that is practically synonymous with the sport, Hinkle is very well-loved. In fact, it is the architectural inspiration for both Conseco Fieldhouse (Indiana Pacers) and Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis Colts). The spirit of aspiration that is so bound up with Indiana basketball was documented in the film “Hoosiers,” the climax of which was filmed in Hinkle and recounts an epic underdog story that actually unfolded at Hinkle in 1954.

But age and grit of the Hinkle variety, though they may warm the heart of a true fan, seldom come with good, more

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – DECEMBER 2009: The historic Henry Miller’s Theatre in the heart of Manhattan has been invented and reinvented, purposed and repurposed, respected and disrespected. Built in 1918 for the famous actor/producer, it spent the first half of its life hosting critically-acclaimed shows such as “Journey’s End,” “Our Town” and “Witness for the Prosecution.” As it closes in on its 100th birthday, a new lease on life promises to carry the Henry Miller’s Theatre past the tumult of recent decades – when it was a club, and an “adult” theater by another name – and back into the limelight of Broadway’s celebrated productions. Keeping the facade and significant structural artifacts, Bank of America raised and rebuilt the theater at the same site, now below their new 57-story headquarters. Along with an elegant and LEED-certified structure, the 1,055-seat theater received a more

OLDIES BUT GOODIES – ATC MONITORS TRANSCEND TIME

rick_springfield.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA: On any random day in any random city in America, knock on any random door and ask the person who answers what they know about Rick Springfield. Without fail, you will hear a reference to Springfield’s iconic ’80s hit, “Jessie’s Girl,” but from there things become less predictable. Many people know that Springfield played the character Dr. Noah Drake on the daytime soap opera General Hospital in the early 1980s and then returned to the role a few years ago. What is perhaps least appreciated is the breadth of Springfield’s musical career, which began in the late 1960s in Australia, gained traction in the U.S. during the 1970s, and exploded in a riot of success in the 1980s before the singer/songwriter took a decadal break to help raise his two sons. more
