February 28, 2008 — Tim McGlynn’s, “Now Playing at Theater Near Me,” is a fantastic and tickling book that presents insights into teen culture during the seventies.

In 1975 the making of an 8mm movie turned disastrous for seventeen-year-old Tim McGlynn and friends. It was a Dog Day afternoon for the young autuers as local cops responded to a staged bank robbery. “Now Playing at a Theater Near Me” combines true-life coming-of-age antics with backstories and personal recollections of films and theaters of the seventies.

Today, teenagers cannot imagine life without DVDs, wireless phones, and the Internet. In Tim McGlynn’s new book, “Now Playing at a Theater Near Me,” readers are taken back thirty years when most entertainment was experienced at local drive-ins and single screen theaters.

Before information was easily accessible from home, America’s youth learned about life, sex and growing old at the movies. “Now Playing at a Theater Near Me” presents hilarious insights into the early seventies. Even movies could not keep up with the rapidly changing cultural issues of the time.

Available from Virtualbook.com, “Now Playing a Theater Near Me” includes stories from the Pickwick Theater in Park Ridge, IL, the 53-Drive-In in Palatine, IL and the Meadows Theater in Rolling Meadows, IL.
