Bath Opera House advertisement for May 14, 1934

Contributed by Patten Free Library


This brightly colored ticket-sized advertisement informed patrons of the cinematic offerings and promotions in a given week at the Bath Opera House in the heart of the city's downtown. On the back, coming attractions were often highlighted. Probably given out when tickets were purchased, these ads allowed the theatre to market the current movies cheaply and effectively, sending customers home with reminders of enticing films on the way. Movie prices are noted at the bottom of the trade cards.
