Geraldton, Ontario : Strand Theatre Show Bills, 1960's.

Thanks to Ken Johnson, who sent me these three scans – unfortunately his email address no longer works. He says: "I'm sending you examples of three different styles of the Geraldton Strand Theatre upcoming movie hand-out cards. They're basically the same as the weekly promo ads that appeared in the Geraldton Times Star newspaper. It's possible they were printed on salvage card stock of different colours, but that's an assumption on my part. . . . . We used to pick them up as we bought our tickets at the theatre's ticket booth".
