This is a book that will intrigue and entertain film buffs and local historians alike.
Few buildings command as much nostalgic affection as the cinemas of yesteryear, whether they were picture palaces or fleapits. Almost all of these buildings in Hertfordshire have disappeared or been altered out of all recognition but this book recalls and describes each of them, town by town, and provides a complete and lavishly illustrated guide to all Hertfordshire's cinemas since 1908 (when the first opened its doors). This is a book that will intrigue and entertain film buffs and local historians alike.
'[this] book is thoroughly recommended both to those who wish to fill a gap in county cinema history, and those locals who can indulge in nostalgia' Mervyn Gould, The Mercia Bioscope
