Picture Palaces of the Golden West focuses on the built form and exotic décor of the picture theatres in the art deco era in Western Australia while placing them in the continuum of the earliest advent of film to the present time. Based on seminal research by Vyonne Geneve at The University of Western Australia, this book draws on long-held memories and well-remembered incidents brought to life by the drawings of designer Ron Facius, which capture the ambience of the buildings and the excitement they brought to Western Australia. The publication also documents the changing attitudes to architectural form and societal expectations, due in no small part to the influence of the movies in this isolated Australian state.
