PEPLUM Cinema

Cool photo of a cinema showing TRIUMPH OF MACISTE...there are a lot of odd things in this (the lion...) but it's nice to see an old theatre showing an Italian Sword & Sandal.

I remember when THE SLAVE & CAPTAIN SINBAD played at our local theater when I was young they had a large stand-up display of both movies in the theater lobby. I also remember for BEN HUR & HANNIBAL. I think this helped bring more people in to see the movies. Most of the movies they showed & especially the epics had these large displays.
