After more than two decades of vacancy, one of the first dedicated movie theaters built by the U.S. Army in the United States was brought back to life. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, awarded a $16.9-million contract to Lampasas-based RKJ Construction Inc. to renovate and build an addition to the 75-year-old main post theater on Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio.
Many of the theater’s architecturally distinctive elements were retained. It was built in 1935 in a Spanish Colonial Revival style with white-stucco exterior, arched entryways and a bell tower reminiscent of Spanish missions. It was finished by the fall 2011.

The Scottish Rite Cathedral Theater is part of the Masonic Temple building in Detroit, the largest Masonic Temple in the world. The Masonic Temple and this incredible 1,586-seat theater were designed by architect Raymond M. Hood. He also designed or co-designed the Chicago Tribune Building, New York Daily News Building, and Rockefeller Center. The Masonic Temple / Scottish Rite Cathedral was inaugurated on January 2, 1930.
The Masonic Temple Theatre is a venue for concerts, Broadway shows, and other special events in the Detroit Theater District. Architect George Mason designed the theatre which contains a 55-foot (17 m)-by-100-foot stage. Detroit Masonic Temple was designed in the neo-gothic architectural style, using a great deal of limestone. The cornerstone was placed on September 19, 1922, using the same trowel that George Washington had used to set the cornerstone of the United States Capitol in Washington D.C.. The building was dedicated on Thanksgiving Day, 1926.
Smooth Jazz fans will attend Valentines with RnR at the Scottish Rite Theatre inside the Masonic Temple in Detroit on Thursday February 14, 2013.
The mission of the Ocean Institute is to inspire all generations, through education, to become responsible stewards of our oceans.
The Ocean Institute has become nationally known for its hands-on marine science, environmental education and maritime history programs. More than 115,000 K-12 students and 6,000 teachers annually participate in the Institute’s 61 award-winning, immersion style programs.
To learn oceanography and science, students voyage onto the ocean to feel and taste the salty sea spray, sort through live specimens, sea creatures, and deep sea fish, observe migrating whales and collect scientific data.
To learn maritime history and literature, students spend an entire night aboard the brig Pilgrim – each student hauling lines, hoisting sails, standing night watch and swabbing decks. Furthermore, students get further appreciation for ocean issues facing our world today. Discussions on sea pollution and how we can save the ocean is part of the ocean education.
To support the Ocean Institute their popular jazz fundraising weekend event combines renowned jazz artists with an elegant evening of epicurean dining, cocktails, and live and silent auctions. Learn more about the festival here.

Convention centers have a long history of hosting important events in our culture. They have served as the setting for everyone from presidents and CEOs, to educators and religious leaders, and even technology and the creative arts. Yet despite the prominence these great venues hold within our society, convention centers have a reputation for producing institutional-grade, mediocre food. Until now.
The Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) and Proof of the Pudding have teamed up to reinvent the food and beverage program at the GICC. This new venture is called CulinAero by Proof of the Pudding, and at its core is a commitment to restaurant-quality food made with fresh, sustainable ingredients.
“The GICC is an established leader in hosting events and now we’re ready to build a leading food and beverage program that will continue to enhance our reputation,” said Mercedes Miller, interim executive director, GICC. “There are a lot of associations and companies looking for meeting destinations that can serve restaurant-quality food made with fresh ingredients, and we believe the GICC can provide value to this market.”
The GICC may be the nation’s most accessible convention center. Connected to a major airport by the ATL SkyTrain, it is just as convenient by car — at the juncture of two major U.S. interstates. The heart of Atlanta is 10 minutes away by rental car or MARTA train. And the airport’s Rental Car Center links to the GICC by the ATL SkyTrain automated people mover.

New York’s original COTTON CLUB is the legendary venue that spawned such jazz legends as Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Lena Horne, and so many others. Located in Harlem, COTTON CLUB (also known by the name “Club Deluxe”), was a vibrant scene that saw celebrities and socialites gather nightly to enjoy cutting edge musical entertainment amid the backdrop of the prohibition of the 1920’s.
Here in Japan, the mission has been to bring back a taste of the Golden Age of the original COTTON CLUB, and to recreate a social scene for adult fans. This dream became a reality on November 22, 2005 with the birth of a new COTTON CLUB in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district. Here, visiting world-class artists form the core of a regular slate of exciting, adult-focused jazz performances played in an elegant, luxuriously appointed venue, topped off by a delicious menu of authentic cuisine. They hope that their COTTON CLUB will become a modern celebrity scene, and in doing so write a new chapter for an already legendary live house.
This venue also welcomes stars of the smooth jazz genre.
