Drugstore Movie Window Cards - Shea's Theaters - Buffalo, NY

When new pictures were about to open drugstores, newsstands, and candy stores were provided with movie window cards. Each card included the title of the film, the leading stars and a small black and white picture of them as well as the theatre where it would be shown. It also encouraged people to catch up on the latest Hollywood gossip by purchasing movie magazines on sale at the store. This small selection of cards comes from the Shea's Theatres in Buffalo, New York. We have been told that one of these theaters still exists. These films, from 1947 and 1948, featured many well known actors and actresses. Each is printed on cardboard and measures 11" wide x 14" high. There are some tack holes and one shows signs of slight water damage but are otherwise in nice condition.
