Director M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender opens this weekend. Observant fans of the Reading Pagoda will spot it (and the nearby hillside) featured in the movie — though I have it on good authority that they are surrounded by quite a bit of CGI.

While I was going back through my archive of photos in preparation for moving the site to its new home, I came upon something that predates the old website and was never posted. So, without further ado . .  . The Reading Pagoda! (of course dear readers, should you wish , you may add additional “ado” if it makes you happy)

This 100-year-old Reading landmark (and former hotel) rests majestically atop Mt. Penn, providing a great view of the city (and the winding road to reach the top is pretty fun)
