You can find a lot of theatre memorabilia there on EBay. A few months ago there was an opening night program for The Fox San Francisco Theatre from 1929. Then last week there was 8 programs up for auction for the Roxy Theatre in New York from around the mid 50’s.
I also found the Radio City, and Garricfk Theater, I am sure there is more
There is a program for the Capital Theatre in NYC from 1926, Loew’s Weekly 1925, Paramount Times Square 1940 and some items for the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
