ADreamCameTrue[Book: John Hutchinson – 1995 – 15x21cm – 74 Pages – Many B&W photos]. Over the years many articles have been written about the Dreamland site (Margate, England) and its development. This book marks the 60th Anniversary of the opening of the New Dreamland Cinema and Entertainment Complex, which first opened on the 22nd March 1935. The building as we see it today, is a tribute to the vision and foresight of two men: John Henry Iles who today would have been considered an entrepreneur, and Julian Rudolph Leathart, the architect responsible for the design. Chapter Points: Foundation for a Dream; The Man Behind the Dream; The Birth of the Cinema; The Man Who Created the Dream; The Dream Came True; The Great Organ; Dreamland at War; How a Piano Saved Lives; The Dream Moves with the Times. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair.
