From the covers: “When the owner of the cinema, Herr Theilhaber, arrives from the station, bringing with him the latest invention, the sound-film, the film explainer is suddenly at odds with his greatest love, the cinema. As his status is gradually eroded the film explainer curses the new technology that is displacing him. Hope of a return to the old ways arrives with the Nazis who are beginning to take an interest in local affairs.”
