Brian Nelson changes the marquee late in the evening in preparation for the following day at The Patricia Theatre in Powell River, British Columbia October 31, 2013. The Patricia was founded in 1913 and entertained customers with silent movies, vaudeville shows and even local boxing matches. The venue has been running continuously since it opened, and still hosts a wide variety of entertainment, from cinema to concerts and vaudeville. The Patricia was the first cinema built in Powell River and although others opened up there, none have survived, meaning that the Patricia is both the town's first and last movie theatre. The theatre was named after Princess Patricia of Connaught, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, whose father, The Duke of Connaught, was Governor General of Canada when the original theatre was built in 1913. The name was picked following a naming contest by the town residents at the time. Picture taken October 31, 2013. REUTERS/Andy Clark (CANADA - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT SOCIETY)
