There’s a rare treat in store for anyone interested in theatres, movie palaces, grand design and architecture of the 1920s and 30s, when the Cinema Theatre Association presents a live collaboration with the renowned Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation on Saturday April 3rd at 5.30pm UK time (9.30am US Pacific Time)

The CTA and LAHTF invites you to go around the world with them on a magical journey to Spanish gardens, French palaces , Moorish promenades, Italian courtyards, Aztec temples and many more. All of them inside your neighbourhood theatre!

Dubbed the “atmospheric” style of theatre and movie palace, it was created and developed by one architect, John Eberson, in America in the 1920s. The idea behind the atmospherics was that most Americans being unable to travel outside their own country, other countries could be brought to them by their appearance being recreated inside a theatre auditorium.

That was the inspiration for these fascinating and intriguing recreations of outdoor spaces, where the skies are forever blue and the stars always twinkle on right on cue.

Come and enjoy seeing dozens of these unique survivors from around the world in a one-hour presentation from the comfort of your own home.
