Los Angeles Art Deco

Art Deco made its formal appearance in Paris at the 1925 L’Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes, a showcase for art, architecture, and design that promoted progress, modernity, and the present.

Theatres in Los Angeles

Los Angeles and the movies grew up together, so it is only fitting that the area would boast the biggest, the best and the brightest theatres imaginable. The magnificent movie palaces along Broadway in downtown Los Angeles still represent the highest concentration of vintage theatres in the world and, of course, Hollywood and the movies are practically synonymous. From the elegant Orpheum and the exotic Graumanís Chinese to the modest El Rey, this volume celebrates the architecture and social history of Los Angelesís unique collection of historic theatres past and present. This volume from Arcadia Publishing's "Images of America" series is authored by ADSLA's own Suzanne Tarbell Cooper, Amy Ronnebeck Hall and reknowned Hollywood historian, Marc Wanamaker. It features a marvelous collection of images showcasing many Los Angeles treasures. ISBN-10: 0738555797. 128 pages, over 200 black and white photographs. Signed by the authors.

$19.99 plus $1.65 California sales tax and $3.25 U.S. postage (for a total of $24.89). Email us for international postage rates. You may purchase a copy online via Paypal or by mail.
