About

Lobby cards are a type of promotional material used in the film industry. They are typically 11x14 inch cardstock posters that were displayed in the lobbies of movie theaters to promote upcoming or current films. They feature images from the film, as well as information about the cast and crew, the plot, and the release date.

Lobby cards were first introduced in the early days of cinema, in the 1910s and 1920s. At that time, movie theaters were often small and independent, and used lobby cards to attract customers and promote their films. As the film industry grew and became more organized, lobby cards became a standard part of movie marketing.

In the 1930s and 1940s, lobby cards became more elaborate and colorful, often featuring eye-catching artwork and stills from the film. They were printed in sets of eight, with each card featuring a different image from the movie. This allowed theater owners to rotate the cards throughout the run of the film, keeping the lobby display fresh and interesting for patrons.

Lobby cards continued to be used throughout the 1950s and 1960s, but their popularity declined with the rise of television advertising and other forms of movie promotion. Today, lobby cards are primarily used as collectibles for film enthusiasts, and are prized for their historical and artistic value.
