This Crowdfunder is Ending Soon!

Less than two days is remaining to the stretch goal!  Thank you all for pledging! Can we make it?

Information on Future Book Prices

The pledge reward pricing is lower than the list price when it is eventually available from Amazon.com.  This is due to Amazon's fees.  At that point I will not make any money on them.

If you are on the fence about pledging, I anticipate the Amazon pricing will be in the $25 range for the softcover and well over $35 for the hard cover.

Nitrate Booth News

In the last past update I mentioned that I would post a video of the inside of a 1920s projection booth.  Yesterday I drove around Detroit to all the usual abandoned buildings with booths and all are boarded up!  The one that wasn't had a police presence near by, therefore, sadly no video.

However, I endeavor to enter this theatre near Detroit as soon as the snow clears again and post the video.  This 1,200 seat theatre was built 1915, the same era as most of the material featured in How To Film Moving Pictures in the 1910s.

What is left of the rotten roof can be seen on the floor.  It is best to video this place after the snow has melted!
