Abstract
Welcome to the movies! Welcome to the stars! Welcome to this grand illusion! All of it's yours.

New Urbanism. Hollywood thinks you're stupid. Scientology. Retro-futurism. Taking back color from toiletries. Personal politics. Cutting off the legs of the bioscopes. The architecture of Fun. The death of Entertainment. Freedom of speech. Sticky floors. Googie. Suburbia. Popcorn. The way we live our lives. All seen through the limelight of a night at the movies.
