Thanks to Jack and Gary for yet another fascinating publication. The compilation of facts and historical photographs are a treasure for everyone’s library… and a great birthday/Christmas gift!

The Bay Area’s two leading theatre historians combined to produce another superb volume in Arcadia’s “Theatres of…” series. Makes a great companion to Jack’s “Theatres of San Francisco” and (with Jennifer Dowling) “Theatres of Oakland” and Gary’s “Theatres of San Jose”. All are excellent reminders of what we once had in the Bay Area in the way of movie theatres and what is now mostly gone forever. If your local book store doesn’t have them check out Amazon or other web dealers. Highly recommended!

Simon and John: Thank you both for your kind words! Yes, Jack and I worked hard, but also had a lot of fun researching, hunting-down images, and writing the text. For the most part, Jack wrote about the business end, and I took care of architectural analysis, though occasionally we traded focus.

Just bought my copy and love it. I grew up on the Peninsula and spent many days and nights at the Carlos and Laurel in San Carlos and Fox in Redwood City. Thanks to Gary Parks and Jack Tillmany for preserving the history of all the Peninsula theatres in their new book.
