Contents: Publisher's Note:

MILWAUKEE MOVIE PALACES ...recounts the story of ovie exhibition in Milwaukee from its beginning in 1896 to the present, through intimate stories and descriptions of the city's theaters and the people who built them.

Over 100 photos help to illustrate how movie-going became a social phenomenon and theaters became cultural landmarks.

Authors Judi Anderson and Larry Widen traced the tale of Milwaukee's movie theaters from the unsophisticated early mickelodeons to the fabulous "palaces" of the 1920s and beyond. [They have compiled] a history that is a testament to the golden age of movie going.

Included is a 47-page alphabetical list of Milwaukee's movie theaters cross-referenced by all known names, giving specifics as to street address, dates of operation, architect (if known), seating capacity, make of organ (if known), and current status.
