At the movies...

A movie theatre in France showing TRIUMPH OF MACISTE...but what's up with the 'HERCULES STORY' and the lion? There's no lion in the movie. Nice photo though.

Cool artwork with a leaping lion overhead as you enter !! I found this on the cinema itself ( It was called Cinechoc during 1963-1966. Perhaps Hercule Story was how the film festival was promoted. The Triumph of Maciste appears to be the final film on the schedule board. The film titles I can make out on the board are :

1. Maciste + ??? + ???
2. ????? (maybe La Fureur d'Hercule)
3. Maciste contre le Cyclope
4. Les 7 Gladiateurs
5. Rome contre Rome
6. ????? (maybe Hercule l'invincible)
7. Le Triomphe de Maciste

The above films were released 1961-64
