Congratulations to Alain Miguelez on his new book release - now available at Penumbra Press!

A Theatre Near You by Alain Miguelez


" After reading this book you will never again go anywhere in Ottawa or Gatineau without glancing around to note ancient facades that were once movie houses. From peep shows and nickelodeons to movie palaces and modern megaplexes, Miguelez tells the story of 150 years of "going to the show" with passion. Profusely illustrated with 315 vintage photographs and five period maps, A Theatre Near You reflects the author's insatiable quest for precision and detail. A Theatre Near You is a preemminent example of popular research exploring the arts, culture, and heritage in the nation's capital. "
