The Bird Cage Theatre, located in Tombstone, Arizona, once operated as a theatre, saloon, gambling parlor, and brothel. It was in operation from 1881 to 1889, which was during the silver boom. Evidence of it’s colourful past can still be seen today - there are over 120 bullet holes throughout the building. New York Times described the Bird Cage Theatre as “the roughest, bawdiest, and most wicked night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast.“ One of the more bizarre murders to occur here took place when two brothel workers got into an altercation and one responded by stabbing the other to death with her stiletto.
With a history of violence, it’s no surprise that the Bird Cage Theatre is said to be the scene of much paranormal activity. Visitors and employees both claim to have seen the ghosts of former brothel workers as well as dowdy men dressed in cowboy hates. Some people have even reported being pushed or shoved by unseen forces. Disembodied laughter and music can often be heard in the dead of night.
very slop but i had to get these guys out of my head. i had a dream about this guy (brown hair, who my dream named rex?) who was driving with his family when he got into a huge accident wherein everyone died except him. he was then approached by ‘Death’ who offered to exchange his wife & kids souls for his own, and he accepted, changing the outcome of the car crash so that only he died. he was sent to purgatory where he wandered for a bit and eventually found a bar, where he met and immediately fell in love with blue. the dream got vague after that but it seemed that everyone in purgatory habitually forgets their previous life, except for blue. he just has the power of remembering. blue loves and wants to keep rex, but also understands that rex desperately wants to return to the living world & his family, so they journey together to find a way out. rex keeps almost forgetting his family and blue keeps almost letting him, but in the end blue just wants rex to be happy.
i don’t know if they make it back to the living world but it was a fun dream.
