    Beschreibung "This is another example of a social survey driven by moral concerns rather than social science itself. But what makes the study valuable is that Phelan backs it up with empirical data. Using Toledo as his subject, Phelan tells the number, type, size, location, ownership and function of the different cinemas in his town. We learn of their value, the rental fees charge, and the cost of machinery, fabric, employees, musicians, advertising, lighting and heating. He supplies figures on the composition of audiences, prices of admission, and the construction of cinema programmes. We learn what it cost to invest in the cinema business, the operating expenses and the revenue. The substantial appendices include a valuable bibliography; examples of relevant legislation; and a list of all Ohio cinemas with owners, managers, seating, location and number of employees."
