Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the Movie Palace Documentary
Friday, February 28, 2020 from 8 PM to 10 PM
Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the Movie Palace (2019) Documentary Other countries built palaces for royalty; in the United States we built them to watch movies. GOING ATTRACTIONS: The Definitive Story of Movie Palaces celebrates the grandeur of the great cinemas of the United States. Built in the 1910s-30s, when movies were the acme of entertainment and the stories were larger than life, so were the venues designed to show them: Thousands of seats, giant screens, exotic and ornate interiors with balconies and lounges, in-house organs and orchestras, amazing marquees, and air conditioning back when homes had none. The film also tracks the theaters' eventual decline, through to current-day preservation efforts. A tribute to America's great art form and the great monuments created for audiences to enjoy them in. A thorough look on the history of American cinemas and the monumental buildings built to view film, as well as the efforts to save these buildings. Admission $8 Doors open at 7pm, Film starts at 8pm Concessions available for sale and arcades games always set to freeplay!
