It stands to reason that America's premiere Amusement district would play a key role one of America's favorite entertainment pastimes: going to the movies. Coney's amusement parks were a center for some of the world's first nickelodeons, and many cinemas graced the neighborhood through the first half of the twentieth century. At the same, Coney Island was immortalized in films, from the earliest silent days, all the way to Woody Allen's upcoming period comedy "Wonder Wheel", scheduled to be released in November, 2017. Author and blogger Trav S.D. leads this entertaining illustrated talk, and shares some entertaining clips.
