The North American movie palace was ingeniously designed to transport patrons away to an exotic world. The design and architecture of these theatres were often modeled after European palaces. Over the decades many became obsolete, were destroyed or lie in ruin, but recent years have seen a movement to restore these national treasures. Palaces of the Night chronicles the history of these landmark structures, their intriguing stories, and their decay and heartening rebirth.
