This poster is the second cinema I’ve depicted, Although I never went to the Harrogate Odeon it is typical of so many cinemas I did frequent in the 1960s and 1970s. Sadly perhaps, many were lost to developments, bingo and most suffered a general decline.
For me the cinema in those days represented both the excitement of seeing a new film and, of course, the enjoyment of a date. In reality they were smoke filled, many were slightly grubby, the queues for ice cream at the interval were everlasting (and if you were at the end they had probably run out of what you wanted.
On the plus side, we a support film (a B Movie), newsreels and often a cartoon thrown into the package. This poster is available to purchase in three sizes. All prints are made to order and produced on a silk matt 170gsm paper. A visual guide to these is shown below:
