This book analyses the diverse historical and geographical circumstances in which audiences have viewed American cinema. It looks at cinema audiences ranging from Manhattan nickelodeons to the modern suburban megaplex, and from provincial, small-town or rural America to the shanty towns of South Africa.
A companion to UEP’s Grand-Guignol: The French Theatre of Horror (now in its third reprint). London’s Grand Guignol was established in the early 1920s at the Little Theatre in the West End. It was a high-profile venture that enjoyed popular success as much as critical controversy.
Since The Théâtre du Grand-Guignol closed its doors forty years ago, the genre has been overlooked by critics and theatre historians. This book reconsiders the importance and influence of the Grand-Guignol within its social, cultural and historical contexts, and is the first attempt at a major evaluation of the genre as performance.

Widely regarded by historians of the early moving picture as the best work yet published on pre-cinema, The Great Art of Light and Shadow: Archaeology of the Cinema throws light on a fascinating range of optical media from the twelfth century to the turn of the twentieth.
Grégoire Le Roy Edited by
Professor Richard Bales
Grégoire Le Roy was at school with Maeterlinck and Van Leberghe, and grew up in the same atmosphere of intellectual ferment. His first published collection pre-dates Maeterlinck’s Serres chaudes. This is the first edition since their original publication of the three collections of poems by a significant member of the Belgian Symbolist school.
