Bite-Sized History: Cinema Meets Vaudeville

In the sixth chapter in our Bite-Sized History series, cinema and vaudeville compete (and co-exist), there’s a theater boom in Portsmouth, and The Music Hall sees the tide come in and go out on its popularity.

This video project comes to us from J. Dennis Robinson and filmmaker Jay Childs and serves as the perfect companion to the definitive Music Hall history book authored by Robinson, Music Hall: How a City Built a Theater and a Theater Shaped a City. Watch all eight chapters here.
