Starting this Sunday ( March 27 ) Heritage Auction Galleries will be offering for sale a series of original stills dating from the 1930s that feature fronts of Boston and New York movie theaters. From the 1920s and right through the 1960s the major studios and their field offices had entire exploitation departments devoted to creating elaborate designs for theaters playing the first runs of films on their release schedule. This group of stills is the first of a series that will be offered by Heritage on successive Sundays. Each batch of stills is open to bidding for one week.
