Established in August 1986 as a UK subsidiary to one of America's most powerful exhibitors, Showcase Cinemas owes its origins ultimately to National Amusements' founder, Michael Redstone, a former Boston night-club owner and pioneer also of the 'drive-in' movie theatre. Here, for the first time, and with the help of the original US parent, the doors of the prestigious UK exhibitor are thrown open to cinephiles world-wide, offering an insight into the British subsidiary's unique philosophy and development. And, with the aid of some previously unpublished photos, this book also takes in a highly illustrated architectural appraisal of several of the circuit's luxurious 'modern day supers' -- and, in particular, of their façades, foyers, auditoria, and projection galleries -- designed by internationally-respected architect, the Shrewsbury-based Abbey Hanson Rowe.
