From Morritt’s Empire to modern Multiplex,
Ashley Franklin, BBC Radio Derby’s voice of
cinema, depicts a rich and revealing history of going
to the pictures. Lavishly illustrated, A Cinema Near
You captures the sights, sounds and sensations of
nearly a century of motion pictures in Derbyshire.
It is a fond, funny, poignant social history for anyone
who lived through the picture house heydays or ever
wondered what they were like.
