The book is good in so far as it goes, but I would've liked more coverage (and pics) of more of Philadelphias downtown theaters. Only a handful are covered (many more are left out) There is an incredibly long list of theaters listed in the back of the book. What happened? I didnt expect a layout of EVERY theater, but certainly the Goldman, Regency, Randolph and a few others should've been covered.

OH the beauty of those grand old theatres! These Philadelphia beauties are wonderfully documented in this exquisite Dover Publication. I congradulate the Dover publishing house for making another wonderful set of black and white images available to us all Its great to see all the architectural interior details of these theatres.

This book is outstanding. I grew up in Phila. and was lucky enough to be around when these Theaters were active.I went to shows in most all of them that are in the book.This book brought back so many fond memories of days gone by.The book is very well written and right on the ball fact wise.It was a wonderful time when those Theaters were around and this book captures so much of that feeling. If you have an interest in Theaters, and especially if you were around back then, you will love this book. If you were not around back then you would still enjoy this book for its historic value. Thank you Irvin R. Glazer.

Philadelphia Theaters a Pictorial History is a must for any fan of theatres, architecture and history. Fantastic photos and an insight into the evolution of the exhibition industry. With so few of these classic and amazing building surviving this book allows many born after the golden age of cinema to see just how spectacular a night at the movies used to be. Highly recommend this book.
