At one time there were more than forty cinemas in Nottingham, offering continuous performances of films to huge audiences.  Michael Payne tells the story of these Picture Palaces, from their beginning, as sideshows at Goose Fair, to the present-day Multiplexes and Media Centres.  Included are photographs of many lost cinemas and memorabilia connected with them.
