There will be a Poli's Palace & Majestic Theatres Memories Project program and book signing hosted by photographers/authors Jay Misencik and Geralene Valentine of Misencik Photography at the Barnum Museum on Sunday, December 10th, 2017 at 2 pm.
The theatres opened in the 1920s and have been shuttered since the 1970s, but Misencik and Valentine have been allowed access in order to photograph them.
The book combines vintage clippings, memories collected from people connected to the theatres, and Misencik and Valentine's contemporary photographs of what remains of their gorgeous interiors.
The Barnum Museum is located at 820 Main St., Bridgeport, CT. A $5 donation to the museum is suggested. The book may be ordered by contacting the authors through their website link above.
