The Final Curtain, by Darren Holden (The Modernist, 2022)

Photographs of decommissioned cinemas, mostly sited in the north of England. Charming, elegiac, and melancholy in equal measure, offering a glimpse of the luxury of classic Odeons, of the turn to bingo to keep these buildings alive, and of workplaces and ways of life left behind. Recommended.


My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
