- New World money meets Old World style - Building the Golden Age of Hollywood
Powerful immigrant film moguls wanted larger cinemas to bring the glamour of the new screen worlds out into the auditorium and onto the street. The result was fabulous new cinemas in the grand architectural styles of the old world: Renaissance France, Moorish Spain, Baroque Italy, Gothic England, and many more. These were - and are - the PICTURE PALACES.
