Cannon Cinemas – An Outline History


Cannon Cinemas – An Outline History looks at the Cannon Group’s beginnings, and at some of the people and factors behind the group’s meteoric rise. Additionally, there is illustrated examination of the circuit’s picture houses highlighting some of the more definitive trademarks of the Cannon legacy including the cinema frontages and façades, the foyers, auditoria and projection equipment using many previously unpublished photographs. Included, too, is a surface account of the Frank Verity-designed Haymarket flagship, the former 1927-built Carlton Theatre acquired by ‘Cannon-Classic’ in 1982. Written by BFI/National Film Theatre and Cinema Theatre Association member, Philip Turner with the co-operation of former Cannon/MGM management, notably Barry Jenkins and George Rymer.
