Theatre Catalogs WANTED for Archiving Project
The Drive-In Exchange, Ltd. is preparing to archive all of the “Theatre Catalogs” that were released by Jay Emanuel Publishing starting from their pre-Theatre Catalog of 1939 through the 1970 Theatre Catalog edition of The Motion Picture Exhibitor.
Our purpose is to make the articles, advertisements and features of each individual volume available to everyone in a digital PDF format. Our search for these catalogs over the past 10 years has enabled us to find most of the rare volumes. The volumes that we are currently in need of are the 1959, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1966, 1967 and 1968 editions.
If anyone out there would like to either sell or donate any of these volumes to use for these archival purposes, we will send you the Theatre Catalog Digital collection (probably on DVD volumes) when they become available for free.
Please contact us ASAP if you can. Thank you.
