“I just wanted to let you know on December 3rd I’ll be giving another lecture in Brooklyn. I’ve revised it/added more photographs so if you came to the first one there’s still new stuff to see.”
Here’s a bit more about it:
“There’s nothing remarkable about a movie theater today, but there used to be. When the great American Movie Palaces opened, they were some of the most lavish, stunning buildings anyone had ever seen. With the birth of the multiplex, theater companies found it harder and harder to keep these buildings open. Some were demolished, some were converted, and some remain to this day. “The Fall of the American Movie Palace” will take you through the history of these magnificent buildings, from their opening in the early 1900s to years after the final curtain.”
