1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Concerned About Movies on September 6, 2012
Format: Paperback
As the original, single-screen movie theaters are being torn down, and those who watched movies in them become fewer and fewer, the memories of what it was like to go to a movie in small-town America during the first half of the 20th Century are sadly being forgotten and lost. This book is a treasure . . . a treasure of images and recollections that deserve to be read, remembered, cherished and saved. I think the authors have done a remarkable job conveying the sights and experiences of what it was like to attend a movie when 'going to the movies' was still something very special. Great job, guys!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very thorough listing of the older movie theatres of South Carolina. It contains an interesting section of historical events related to the families who owned them. It compares well with the other books in my collection; listings and histories of theatres on other states or large cities.
