6. FORD'S THEATRE in Washington, DC is still open for live performances,

events and tours. Visit to see the original historic theatre, museum exhibits with artifacts and the preserved Presidential Box where Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln sat to watch the popular comedy play, "Our American Cousin" on that fateful night April 14, 1865.
Much more on Ford's Theatre at the Link, https://www.fords.org/

3. I agree.

Except for the huge cigarette ad right in the middle of the podium...
