  1. I used to live in the dorms across from this building for a couple of years. The Opera House usually hosts shows that are most popular on weekends, but always closes down after a certain hour at night. Usual business. One late night while walking down the street by myself, I looked into one of the windows of the opera house (they have slightly parted, opaque white curtains hanging in front on the inside), I could see a small lamp on a table that was on. Weird, because no other light was on in the building. Then an old woman in early 1900s looking dress walked in from another room and took a seat on the couch and just sat there and stared at nothing. Very creepy.
