Book summary

Going to the Pictures recalls the days when a night out could only mean a trip to the local Regal or fleapit. The century's most popular art form is remembered in the words of cinema-goers from all over the country, recalling village halls in the Highlands and Islands, as well as the art deco palaces of the cities. Scots share memories of the Silent days, courting in the balcony, noisy children's matinees, and the sheer glamour of Hollywood and the stars. Scottish images on the big screen also feature in a survey of a hundred years of Scotland on film. [via]
