Theatres

Where have all the marquees gone?  During the 1930s and the 1940s every big and little town had its theatre.  Theatre marquees spelled out excitement and glamour.  They were symbolic of plush interiors, places where one could escape into a world of illusion for a few hours.  This was entertainment for the whole family.  Then along came television and more than three thousand theatres closed.  Thoses that closed were mostly small storefront houses with less than five hundred seating capacity.  Large theatres fought back with cinemascope and air conditioning.  In the next two decades freeways, malls, and the decline of downtowns closed thousands more.  Then the final blow came with the development of cable and VCR.  (Read more...)
