Vintage stills of 1930s theaters for sale
Heritage Auction Galleries is offering for sale a selection of 8 x 10 original glossies featuring elaborate theater fronts for such films as 42nd Street. Created by the studios exploitation department working with the theater owner, decorated theater fronts and interior lobby art were a mainstay of movie promotion from the 1920s through the 1950s. This is the first batch of what will be a series of weekly auctions of similar material.
