Silent Screens.
The Decline and Transformation of the American Movie Theater.

Photographs by Michael Putnam. Text by Robert Sklar.
Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, 2000. 110 pp., 60 duotone illustrations, 10¼x9".

Published in cooperation with the Center for American Places, Silent Screens documents the changes, and ultimate passing, of an era in American culture. All but gone are the single screen theaters that dotted small towns and cities across the nation, now converted to serve a variety of utilitarian and social functions. Having begun his project in the early 1980s, Putnam's work stands as an invaluable archive, sprung from the legacy of great documentary photography.
