Buy 'After The Pictures' by Keith G. Rose at Amazon.co.uk

The number of cinemas in the Liverpool area peaked at over ninety and this book tells the story of the rise and fall of them, plus their eventual fate. An A to Z gallery of the picture houses gives brief details of each one, along with external, internal views and ephemera. As a bonus there are four case studies, which detail the politics behind their creation and the reasons for their demise.

With hundreds of pictures, some in colour, plus line drawings and paperwork, this is a must for anybody who was a cinemagoer, or who just wants to see what we had and then lost. Five years in the making, this is the end product to share the memories of a vanished era.

After The Pictures by Keith G. Rose is Published by Alba Printers Ltd. Dumfries, Scotland Softback, 193 pages, A4, ISBN 13:978-0-9554737-2-2 Price £16. 99. Buy this book at Amzon.co.uk.
