Dream Come True!:
And Their Music (Vestal
Perhaps the most comprehensive, if not the only book that
covers early movie theaters
from the Nickelodeon Period.
Many books touch on it, however, Q. David Bowers
is known for his exhaustive research and has assembled a vivid
view of what early nickelodeon theatres were like. Packed
with information on the evolution of movie theatres starting
at 1895 until about 1915. The book is loaded with photos showing
theatre architecture, movie equipment, from-the-period and
reprints of advertisements fro projectors, theatre organs
and many other theatre accouterments.
Truly a must have for anyone interested in the development
of the motion picture industry and the beginnings of movie
