From the opera house and movie palace to the modern multiplex, the big screen in Delaware is more than a century old. Hollywood legend Cary Grant visited the Playhouse in 1955, fondly recalling his days on its stage as a child actor. Clint Eastwood came to Wilmington for a secret test screening of his film The Gauntlet at the Branmar Cinema. The groundbreaking history of Star Wars includes a Delaware theater that was one of only forty-five in the country to open the film. Author Michael J. Nazarewycz recounts the cinematic history of Delaware’s movie theaters.
