Welcome! I am author Victoria Hallerman, and I look forward to sharing posts about topics related to my new memoir, Starts Wednesday: Coming of Age in a Movie Palace. Look for blog posts related to the preservation and reviving of wonderful old movie palaces and theaters, among other topics. Please check back shortly!
Victoria Hallerman is a poet and writer, the author of the upcoming memoir, Starts Wednesday: A Day in the Life of a Movie Palace, based on her experience as a movie palace manager of the St. George Theatre, Staten Island, 1976. As she prepares her book manuscript for publication, she shares early aspects of theater management, including the pleasures and pain of entrepreneurship. This blog is for anyone who enjoys old movie theaters, especially for those who love the palaces as they once were. And a salute to those passionate activists who continue to save and revive the old houses, including the St. George Theatre itself. This blog is updated every Wednesday, the day film always arrived to start the movie theater week.
