My tangle pattern "Biloxi"

Do you ever see a picture or a pattern and immediately have a word or place pop into your mind with no reason you can figure out?

This is a very common pattern, but I don't believe anyone has worked up tangle steps for it.  I know I've seen variations of it in quilts, and wall hangings buildings.  Which is where my question above, and the title for this pattern comes. 

Whenever I see this pattern, I get a vision of a movie theatre with insets of this design around the marquee, and the word Biloxi pops into mind.  I did a google search on Biloxi theatre and came up with nothing to explain the image, so I'm guessing I got it from a movie or TV series or a picture book.  Anyone have any ideas where it might have come from?
