They Say The Neon Lights Are Bright On Broadway

On a gloomy evening, the theater marquee of the old Broadway Theater brightens up this busy corner of Capitol Hill. It became a Rite Aid Pharmacy in 1990. Originally called the Society Theater when it opened circa 1909, it took the name Broadway Theater in 1934. The current marquee dates back to 1948, and has been modified only slightly with a bit more neon border and the Rite Aid logo (see all the theater's incarnations here).
