Description - Warner Cinemas by Philip D. Turner
Today's Warner multiplex theatres, frequently mocked by purists although quite erroneously -- for their supposed clinical, futuristic appearance; their close corporate similarity; and somewhat 'factory-like' methods of exhibition, are examined in this book. The book examines 'identifying features of the theatre circuit, evaluating specifically their architectural and amenity merits -- quite often a triumph of human logistics over environment -- in addition to their extremely high standards of fit-and-finish which has helped in making Warner one of the world's more prestigious players in the field. Amongst others, the book takes a look at the cinemas at Croydon, Leicester, Acton, Harrow and Oberhausen, and also at the 1938 established Warner West End flagship.
