Theatres and Cinemas of Wakefield
Through the medium of old photographs, programmes and advertisements, this book provides a fascinating look at the history of theatre- and cinema-going in Wakefield and its adjacent towns over the last century. Including insights into the technology behind the silver screen, the entrepreneurs and the cinema chains who operated in the area, the stars, the staff and of course the customers, "Theatres and Cinemas of Wakefield" reveals how the experience of cinema-going has changed over the decades. Detailed histories of the region's theatres and the stars who flocked to tread their boards make this volume a comprehensive guide to the history of entertainment in the region.
