Geraldton, Ontario : Strand Theatre Show Bills, 1960's.
who sent me these three scans. He says:
" I'm sending you examples of three different styles of the Geraldton Strand Theatre
upcoming movie hand-out cards. Theyíre basically the same as the weekly promo ads that appeared in the
Geraldton Times Star newspaper. Itís possible they were printed on salvage card
stock of different colours, but thatís an assumption on my part. . . . . We used
to pick them up as we bought our tickets at the theatreís ticket booth ".
This show bill is no earlier than 1961, as that's when "Love in a Goldfish Bowl" was released.
"Dentist in the Chair", "Carthage in Flames",
"Passport to China", and "The Millionairess" were released in 1960, and
"Force of Arms" was released in 1951.
Show bill is from 1967 -- "Celebrating Canada's Centennial".
Films advertised are: "Dear John" (1964), "The Million Eyes of Sumuru" (1967), "The Spy With a Cold Nose" (1966), and
"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937).
Films advertised are: "Critic's Choice" (1963), "California" (1963), "Varan The Unbelievable" (1962), and
"Donovan's Reef (1963).
