Jonathan Rosenbaum, one of Americas most gifted film critics, began his moviegoing in the 1950s in small-town Alabama, where his family owned and managed a chain of theaters.Starting in the Deep South of his boyhood, Rosenbaum leads us through a series of screen memories, making us aware of movies as markers of the past—when and where we saw them, with whom, and what we did afterward.

The mood swings easily from sensual and poignant regret to screwball exuberance, punctuated along the way by a tribute to the glamorous Grace Kelly of Rear Window, a meditation on The Rocky Horror Picture Show and its improbable audience-community, and an extended riff on Rosenbaums encounters with On Moonlight Bay.Originally published in 1980, Moving Places is reissued now both as a companion volume to the authors latest book and as a means of introducing a new generation of film buffs to this unique, often humorous exploration of one mans life at the movies.
