Irem Shrine, Wilkes-Barre

This absolutely magnificent building is the old Irem Shrine, in Wilkes-Barre, PA. It was built as an auditorium for the local Shriners group back in the early 1900's. Appaerntly the building is in rough shape and the city is not quite sure what to do with it. Maintenance on a building of this size and vintage must be extremely expensive and the local Shriners don't have the money to upkeep it. What a shame.
