It is with a sad and heavy heart that THS reports David A. Naylor, much loved author, theatre historian, and long-time THS member, has passed away.
As the author of American Picture Palaces: The Architecture of Fantasy, Great American Movie Theaters and American Theaters: Performance Palaces of the Nineteenth Century, David was able to document and capture the magic of the American movie theater landscape. Global in his vision and friendships, David will be greatly missed.
A blog, Dave Naylor the Great, has been set up as a virtual memorial for memories of Dave and those who knew this wonderful and inspiring man.
For those of you who would like to make a contribution to THS in David’s memory, please make sure to note that information in the “comments” section in the online form.
