Lost movie theatres: Movie-going in a cross-border city

Nicks, Joan 1937- (Author). Grant, Barry Keith, 1947- (Added Author).

Lost Movie Theatres explores the role movies, movie-going, theatre architecture, and community values played in city-building in Niagara Falls, Ontario, boosted by hometown newspapers, from early 20th century, through wartime, to the decline of core business and drift to urban sprawl and suburbia, malls and multiplexes.
