| Book Description: |
From Nickelodeons and penny arcades in the 1890s to sophisticated, grand movie palaces in the 1920s and '30s, the evolution of American movie theaters was as dramatic as the films they showed. This book identifies the main styles of decoration, and conjures up the experience of actually sitting in one as the lights dimmed and the music swelled.
