For more than two decades this Realist artist has been preserving cherished memories from an era gone by. His brilliantly precise paintings of the glittering Art Deco fantasy palaces that once lent magic to main streets across the nation recall the thrill of going to the movies in the days before malls and multiplexes. Sadly, many of the theatres no longer exist, but the spirit of them all remains alive in this evocative and nostalgic book.
