Written by a filmgoer who loves wandering around cities as much as he enjoys sitting in cinemas watching films, the Silver Screen Cities books spring from the notion that visiting cinemas and their neighbourhoods is a great way of getting to know different cities.Unlike conventional collections of film reviews, the Silver Screen Cities books are about the whole experience surrounding cinema-going, rather than just a series of reviews. The film reviews sometimes take up only one or two paragraphs in a chapter, because city cinema-going is about much more than just the film that is being shown – it’s also about the cinema itself and the audience watching the film- the unique character and atmosphere of different cities with their bars, cafés, restaurants, and art museums- and the feeling of freedom that comes from wandering a city’s streets before or after seeing a film.DAVID KINTORE was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and grew up in York, England. He has lived and worked abroad for most of his life, enjoying the pleasures of expat existence in foreign cultures. Sitting through sparsely attended midweek showings of films in foreign cities is one of his favourite pastimes.
