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.
