9780786475278: Motion Picture Exhibition in Baltimore: An Illustrated History and Directory of Theaters, 1895-2004

The movie house is part of America's physical and cultural landscape. From nickelodeons to 1920s palaces to the megaplexes of today, changes in theater design coincide with America's understanding of entertainment and how it is delivered. A look at the movie houses of one large American city can reveal much about motion picture exhibition in the whole country. This book offers such revelations, as well as fascinating local detail.

Part I is a history of motion picture exhibition and moviegoing in Baltimore from 1895 to the present.

Part II lists theaters alphabetically and describes them in detail. Appendices offer a list of the theaters by street address; a roster of architects; comments on theater architecture in general; and a discussion of theater personnel. There are 161 photographs, notes, bibliography and index.
