Yeovil Cinemas Through Time


    With digital TV, DVDs, Blu-ray players and internet downloads, there have never been more ways to watch your favourite movies. But not so long ago the only option for film fans was a visit to the local cinema. The first picture house in Yeovil was the Princes Street Assembly Rooms, which was built in 1889 as a general entertainment venue and started screening films in 1896. Jane Duffus takes us on a unique journey through time to see the affect that modern technology has had on the many cinemas that Yeovil once had, and in doing so reveals a rich vein of untapped history about the town. This full colour book will surprise and delight anyone who knows the area.
