In the 1940s and ’50s, Havana was a movie-mad city, reportedly boasting more movie theatres than even New York, and more movie-theatre seats per capita than perhaps any city in the world. Overwhelmingly, these theatres — which included Art Deco palaces and a number of modernist gems — showed Hollywood films. Featuring interviews with film scholars, historians, and Cubans on the island, Errol Flynn’s Ghost: Hollywood in Havana will chronicle the enduring cultural impact of American movies in Cuba, and recall the last great real-life adventure of Hollywood swashbuckler Errol Flynn: the Cuban revolution.
