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 Americas 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.
