Now Available: "The Golden Age of Folkestone's Cinemas" by Ricky Hart
Ricky Hart's The Golden Age of Folkestone's Cinemas has NOW BEEN PUBLISHED and available in certain bookshops in Kent, priced £14.95.
The author, Ricky Hart, charts the story of the town's early picture palaces and their development through to the 'Cinema Supreme' of the 1930s. His personal memories and experiences are intertwined to provide us with a unique glimpse into that era when the 'silver screen' portrayed such wonders and provided escapism into so many worlds. More than this, though, Ricky describes his passion for the cinema organ which led him to rescue whatever he could when these fabulous instruments were being sent for scrap or consigned to the demolition contractor's bonfire. Through his own incredible effort and determination he built his own theatre organ which provided him and his many friends so much pleasure over the years. Here then, is that story - The Golden Age of Folkestone's Cinemas.
