The story of the man who took the theatres from rags to riches with a mighty cast including all of the greatest names in show business and with the entire amusement world as a brilliant romantic background. From furtive pee-shows to palaces of fantastic brilliance; from paint-daubed calico signs to complicated mechanisms blazing with a thousand lights…that is the story of “the movies” which parallels this human, candid and unique story of the man whose genius made that transition possible. For this is the story of A. J. Balaban whose love of perfection and creative ability made side-shows into factors of world importance, whose vision made possible the plush-hung impressive theaters which provide welcome escape from reality to all of us, whose aim in life is to bring pleasure to the millions-creating understanding and goodwill.
