Title: Left in the Dark: Portraits of San Francisco
Authors: Edited by Julie
Lindow, Photographs by R.A.
the city of San Francisco many theaters built between 1910 and 1950 are
still standing, and some even remain in operation, serving as poignant
reminders of Hollywood's Golden Age and the social interactions that
once came with movie-going.
R.A. McBride's lush color photographs-made with film cameras, of
course-showcase these temples to celluloid in all their threadbare
Photographed empty, the buildings' architectural qualities, from
rotunda chandeliers and warmly glowing walls to drab lobbies and worn
armrests, come to the fore.
Essays by scholars and film exhibitors cast light from personal and
scholarly perspectives, examining the movie houses' roles as characters
in the cultural drama of the city.
