The Story of Sidmouth's Cinemas & Theatres by John Griffiths £3.00

Cinema from the magic lantern exhibitions of the late 1800's, the horse drawn travelling cinema of 1906, the silent movie picture house to the super sound cinema of the present day.

Theatrical entertainment, from the early 1800's, could be in the street or a suitable hall, barn or inn yard. By the the 1820's Sidmouth had halls attached to churches and rooms in inns - stability came with the building of The Manor Hall in 1891.

Wander around Sidmouth with your copy and discover the sites, some surprising, where entertainment took place.
