Silent Screens: The Decline and Transformation of the American Movie Theater
Michael Putnam (au); Robert Sklar (in)
The single-screen movie theaters that punctuated small-town America’s main streets & city neighborhoods since the 1920s are all but gone. Here, photographer Putnam captures them in decline & transformation, including: closed theaters, theaters that had been converted to other uses (a church, a swimming pool), theaters on the verge of collapse, theaters being demolished, & even vacant lots where theaters once stood. The result is an archive of images, large in quantity & geographically diffuse. The beautiful photos are accompanied by original reminiscences on moviegoing by Peter Bogdanovich, Molly Haskell, Andrew Sarris, & Chester H. Liebs as well as excerpts from the works of poet John Hollander & writers Larry McMurtry & John Updike.
