Review: Motor City Movie Culture, 1916-1925

Researchers studying the history of film exhibition and movie culture during the silent era may find Richard Abel’s recent book, Motor City Movie Culture, 1916-1925 to be of much interest. My newly published review of the book for Nineteenth Century Theatre and Film can be found on the journal’s website; a preprint version can be found here (the preprint is for personal reference only; the review is protected by copyright and reuse is restricted to non-commercial and non derivative uses).
