South Jersey Movie Houses (NJ) (Images of America) by Allen F. Hauss



Allen F. Hauss, a retired educator, grew up in and around the movie houses of South Jersey. His father, a projectionist, often took him along to watch the show and learn the trade. Universally movie theaters are gone along with our youth. But this book helps to ease the loss of the great movie era. Paging through these images causes memories to flood back letting us relive the days when movies were our escape. The only draw back is that their are not enough pictures of the years that show the progress of the theaters. Generally an excellent walk down memory lane every time it is opened.

South Jersey Movie Houses. Part of the Images of America: New Jersey Series). Since the early 1900s, when the first moving images flickered on the screens of storefront nickelodeons, going to the movies has been an integral part of life across America.

South Jersey Movie Houses is a pictorial tour of the theaters that once raised their curtains to audiences across the southern part of the state. It offers a nostalgic look at their neon marquees and silver screens, bringing back memories of Saturday matinees, 3-D glasses, and movie date nights. Download this book Get similar books.

Since the early 1900s, when the first moving images flickered on the screens of storefront nickelodeons, going to the movies has been an integral part of life across America. By the 1950s, there were over 230 theaters in southern New Jersey, ranging from lavish palaces like the 2,000-seat Stanley in Camden to modest venues like the 350-seat Little in Haddonfield. Today, sadly, less than a dozen remain standing, and most of those are now used for other commercial purposes. Only the Broadway in Pitman continues to operate as the last of the original motion-picture palaces. South Jersey Movie Houses is a pictorial tour of the theaters that once raised their curtains to audiences across the southern part of the state. It offers a nostalgic look at their neon marquees and silver screens, bringing back memories of Saturday matinees, 3-D glasses, and movie date nights.

This is a wonderful book about all of the movie houses in South Jersey. It's very detailed with many photos of the actual theatres and their ads including the history of ownership and operation.

What a thrill to read this remarkable tribute to old South Jersey movie theaters. Regardless of your own hometown, as you thumb through the pages and see the photographs and read the history of these grand old structures, you will be transported (as I was) to your own individual neighborhood childhood memories of going to the movies on Saturday afternoons and sitting in the dark, waiting for the big velvet drapes to open to that giant screen. Author Allen F. Hauss is to be commended for the time and effort spent sharing his love for the old movies theaters with all of us. I couldn't get over all the actual pictures of hundreds of South Jersey theaters - with descriptions, history, old movie posters, advertisements. Seeing the old Midway Theater in Camden, the Westmont Theater in Haddon Township, Steele Pier in Atlantic City (yea, Steel Pier) and countless others, resurrected my own personal memories of going to the Logan Theater in North Philadelphia back in the 50's - seeing James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause and so many others wonderful old movies. Thanks for the memories, Allen Hauss. You brought back on printed page the grand old forgotten structures that were left only to the shadows of our recollections.

As a Pennsylvanian with a fondness for old theaters, I wondered if this book was a stretch, geographically speaking. To my surprise and pleasure, it not only broadened my interest in the Jersey theaters but also filled in holes on theaters I had often heard about and occasionally visited. It's obviously a labor of love, but one done by a writer with both passion and expertise concerning his topic. The sections are broken down geographically, and the pictures are more than evocative -- I go back quite often to this book -- the photos are windows to a past that was more than special to anyone old enough to remember or curious enough to want to know more.
