Twin Cities Picture Show
Minnesota Historical Society Press has just published my new book, Twin Cities Picture Show: A Century of Moviegoing. There’s plenty here to satisfy classic theater buffs (including “Feature Presentation” profiles of 29 significant show houses, and a comprehensive appendix listing every movie theater that’s ever operated in Minneapolis and St. Paul), but it’s more than theater nostalgia. It’s a history of American moviegoing as experienced by the people of one of Middle America’s great metropolitan areas. Available through all the big online merchants as well as MHS Press:
Enjoy the show!
