Pressestimmen"Jones takes us back to the heyday of the silver screen, when going downtown to an extravagant movie palace was the highlight of the week. Then she shows how contemporary visionaries have preserved and reinterpreted these grand old theaters for a modern 'going downtown' experience." - Thomas Graham, Flagler College, St. Augustine
