Third Tiny Door Appeared


Last night, a tiny door was spotted in the lobby at the Nickelodeon Theatre. We are not sure how long it has been there. The story is actually a short screenplay, and the creatures who have inhabited the tiny enclosure are not so different from you and me... just a little smaller. Come by soon and check it out.

Visit and the Tiny Doors of Columbia Project Page for more details on the project.
