Plaza Theater, Wharton

plaza theater lighting up wharton downtown square
W5RAN featured my little homage to Texas (Wharton) boy Horton Foote on their front page last night. I just so happened to be in Wharton the night the local theater troupe was wrapping up its performance run of Foote's Academy Award winning screenplay to Harper Lee's one and only novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Being on the Wharton main square that cold, February evening (though the story is set in the fictitious Alabama town of Maycomb), I could easily imagine Scout, Jem and Dill running out of their hiding place in order to go and protect Atticus from the lynch mob.
