Hardcover: 368 pages
Limited Edition: numbered, 396-398
Publisher: Theatre Historical Society
American Theatres of Today (ATOT) was originally published as two separate volumes in 1927 and 1930. To celebrate the Theatre Historical Society’s 40th Anniversary, it was decided to publish a special numbered, limited edition reprint of this long unavailable reference work. ATOT is one of the very few books on theatres produced during the era when large movie palaces were being built all across the country. Included in the reissue is a wonderful introduction by famed showman Samuel L. “Roxy” Rothafel. Also, this fabulous book contains numerous essays on many design and operational aspects of theatres from the period, and is illustrated by hundreds of beautiful photographs, drawings and plans.
To do justice to this significant book, it has been printed it in its original large-format size (9″ x 12″), using heavy, acid-free paper. Like its original volumes, it features blue cloth binding with a gilt title and border on the front and on the spine. We have added cross reference indexes by theatre name, location and architect, and have compiled a list of corrections and clarifications to make it more user-friendly, accurate and informative.
Do not miss out on this unique book! Only a few of the 400 reprinted copies remain. Original copies of this book are extremely rare and sell for many hundreds of dollars. Even the 1977 single volume reprint is hard to find and expensive. So, do not delay!
