15 Totally Tubular Lunch Boxes All Cool 80’s Kids Had

The elementary school cafeteria is a place where little kids first learn to barter and trade. Learning how to upgrade your snacks, sandwich and dessert with fellow classmates is an important skill to have. For those of us who were stuck with boring carrot sticks and apple slices, our classroom cred was somewhat limited. The only way to save face was to have the coolest most desired lunch box in the whole school.

Want of the Week – 1935 Phantom Empire Movie Lobby Card

Lobby cards were a form of picture show advertising in the early 20th century in movie theaters. They were smaller than the standard movie poster and often displayed on an easel in the front lobby of the theater. They generally came in sets of six or eight and depicted different scenes from the featured film.

A FyndIt member is searching for a lobby card for the 1935 American Western film The Phantom Empire. This twelve chapter musical was a crossover between western and science-fiction genres. They have posted a Want for The Phantom Empire lobby card to FyndIt and are asking the community to help them track down an original copy in good shape. They have exhausted their resources online and are specifically looking for help searching local collectible stores all over the world.
