A must-have book for those who love silent era theaters. Q. David Bowers’ lovingly-compiled study is light on text but absolutely packed with contemporary illustrations, comprised of historical photographs, trade advertisements, photo postcards and magazine articles.

Also covers film accompaniment methods and musical instruments utilized in nickelodeon theaters, especially the Wurlitzer and Hope-Jones pipe organs, and the Fotoplayer.

Readers can get lost in its pages for hours. A fun book.
