    Guess the Church #1

    Presenting Guess The Church. Church architecture can be amazing, historic, or downright bland and fugly. To make it somewhat doable each entry can include a few clues.

    Today's entry is an example of stunning church architecture. You will find this church in a larger midwestern USA city. It has appeared in film. Any clues? What say you?

    That's the St. Theodosius Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Cleveland. The domes were a dead give-away and if you weren't familiar with that particular church, it should help narrow down the denomination somewhat.

    Definitely not strip-mall, store-front church architecture.

    First guess is the correct guess. Trophy goes to WSU MUP Student. The church was the site for the wedding (beginning of movie) and funeral (end of movie) in the great film The Deer Hunter. Alert passengers on the expressway nearby can see the domes. Years ago I visited the neighborhood (Tremont) to search-out the church and other locations for what is my favorite movie.

    Splendid architecture.
