Book Description A. J. Balaban Foundation, 1964. Paperback. Condition: Very Good. B0179BL9LG "Author's Memorial Edition" of 5,000 copies. Numbered 3285 and possibly signed. Very nice and clean. Text free of highlighting and writing. Tightly bound. Abraham Joseph Balaban, known as A. J. Balaban or Abe Balaban (April 20, 1889 ? November 1, 1962), was a Chicago-based showman whose particular influence on popular entertainment in the early 20th century led to enormous innovations in the American movie-going experience. Following the leasing and operation of a modest nickelodeon house in 1909,[1] Balaban oversaw the commission and design of Chicago's great movie palaces for the Balaban & Katz (B&K) exhibition chain, integrated live performers into themed stage extravaganzas with full orchestras and forever changing vaudeville,[2][3] and inspired numerous and novel ideas for theatre management. --Wikipedia.
