What People are Saying About This

W. Edward Orser

"A sweeping, almost encyclopedic portrait of the movie theaters of Baltimore, Flickering Treasures should be well-received by general readers for its rich combination of background profiles and engaging interviews. Equally impressive, a virtually complete set of matching historic and modern photos chronicles both decay and adaptive reuse. Captivating."

Stephen Hunter

"Both a celebration of the splendid glory of what was once the Baltimore movie palace experience and a funereal dirge for what became of those grand old bijoux as the passing of time pulled them toward squalor. To behold the book is, in some sense, to behold the arc of America's cities in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries."
