This is a "selection of the greatest movie theaters still standing in big cities and small towns across the United States." Other books, including Naylor's own American Picture Palaces ( LJ 12/1/81), have described the movie theaters of the 1920s, but this treatment is comprehensive. Over 300 theaters are organized by six geographical regions, then arranged alphabetically by state, city, and theater name. Entries give the architect, date of opening, current ownership and use, and the architectural design and the theater's history. Most theaters are shown by at least one photograph. Recommended.
