Devon at the Cinema
Devon at the Cinema
  • Description
From daily newsreels of the silent era, to the Golden Age of cinema in the 1930s and 40's, the people of Devon came to know the stars of the silver screen whose glamorous and romantic lives became the talk of schoolyard and village square. In this remarkable book, Gordon Chapman, provides a complete illustrated history of the cinema in Devon, from the days in which barns were used for makeshift screenings to the buildings of the modern multiplexes. Through his extensive research the author chronicles the early years of filmgoing, when the screen was a simple sheet pinned up in a local barn. From Barnstaple to Budleigh Salterton, every known cinema building has been identified and illustrated, from Rex to Regal, and Scala to Savoy. Here too are stories and interviews from the people of Devon revealing just how important the movies were, and still are, in their lives. ISBN 1855227584, hardback, 210x297mm, 160pages.
