“We have a wonderful collector of theatre history named Cezar Del Valle, who has collected more Brooklyn theatre information than probably anyone else around and has written two wonderful books.”

“Comprehensive, accurate and useful, The Brooklyn Theatre Index series is a valuable addition to any serious theatre historian’s library.”

“Good news for theatre lovers (especially those in the New York area). Recently published in 2010 is the definite appraisal of all movie theatres to have operated in Brooklyn, a borough known to have had the most theatres operating out of the five boroughs.”
