This is OK as an overview but if you're really interested in the subject you'd be better finding a copy of "Picture Palaces of Liverpool" by Harold Ackrod, which itself is a reissue of the same author's "Dream Palaces of Liverpool". In fact, the revision is so substantial that if you're really, REALLY into this subject you will want to own both books because in spite of some obvious overlapping they are really two very different publications. I didn't know of the first one until I got the second and a friend with the first one then loaned me his original version and I not only bought a used copy of that for myself but I also went out and bought a copy of the revision for my friend (I owed him a book anyway.).

But back to the book I'm reviewing. This thin A4 sized publication, which is by the publishers of the Liverpool Echo, is more of a supplement than a book but it has some nice photos and a few good articles but it is also filled with a lot of articles that are the reminiscences of local 'celebs', mainly about their childhood visits to the pictures, and whilst one or two of these add atmosphere they quickly start to become repetitive and uninteresting.

With postage and the used seller's price I think I paid over the odds for this 'coffee table' book which is no more than an introduction and overview to the subject really, but as I suspect it will mainly be of interest to people in Liverpool (I'm FROM Liverpool but live abroad at present) they'd be better popping into the bookshop in St John's Market where I found on my last trip home they keep a large stock of new copies at a pound each.

I purchased this book as I am interested in cinema arcitecture, particularly from the golden years. Although the book was an enjoyable read, set out in decades, it centered on the films of the various decades and less on the actual cinema arcitecture. Interesting and reasonable value for mony but if you are looking at the buildings and interiors there are better 'Arcitectural' cinema/theatre books out there noteably 'Cathederals of the Movies

This book took me on an enjoyable nostalgia trip back to my youth in the city I left when I married. From the first cinema I visited with my parents to one of the first to close which was also my local, the photography and contributors' reminiscences brought back happy memories as well as a sense of loss. Highly recommended.
