Going to the pictures was an important part of our social life, long before the days of television. A brief escape from reality in an environment of comfy seats, uniformed staff and central heating. With a total of over 90 cinemas, Liverpool certainly satisfied the publics desire for the moving pictures.

This book charts the rise and fall of the Liverpool cinemas and what fate befell them after the final credits had rolled. Loads of pictures, so you should remember which one was your local.

Not suitable for propping up furniture, this is something that you should want to read again and again. Modern cinemas will never have the ambience of the old Picture House, so see a lost forever part of our social history.
