    1. How many people remember movie theaters? No, not the giant big box corporate-owned Cineplexes that wipe out small locally-owned theaters, where teenagers sit there texting and only the top Hollywood hyped-up films are aired, but old theaters, like those little drive-ins, like those town-owned theaters, where you could escape into another world and view films from all over the world. Ticket to Paradise is a wonderfully artistic book that celebrates the history of theaters throughout the 20th cent [...]

    2. Sad and beautiful history of the old movie palaces of the 1920s-40s. My only gripe about the book is that for a book written by a photographer, a lot of the pictures seemed like an afterthought. Little thumbnail page filler instead of the full page glossies I'd been hoping for. I would have loved a few more big photos to pore over.
