Product Details
By Larry Widen & Judi Anderson

Our memories of magnificent movie palaces and neighborhood theaters consist of more than just starry ceilings, plush seats, and elaborate decor - they are a link to an age of romance, of innovation, and of community. This beautifully illustrated volume traces the history of Milwaukee's movie theaters, from the 1890's to the grand palaces of the Roaring Twenties to the shopping mall outlets of today. Silver Screens illuminates the importance of movie theaters in American culture and encourages their preservation and restoration for future audiences to enjoy.
