Old Adverts from the Theatre Royal intermission.

Here are some stills from a 35mm cinema reel of silent adverts that were used at the Theatre Royal Cinema.

I used to love the "Pearl and Dean" adverts section. :-)

My favourite was the Tameside Taxis advert.

Big thanks to Stephen for these advert stills. I used to look forward to Pearl & Dean, but more because you knew that when they'd finished the "big picture" would be starting! Who remembers the Kiora advert, and there was one for Moscrops Babyland - Stephen might have the still for that. I was never a fan of the pictures at the Theatre - the Ritz was definitely the place for me - although I vividly recall seeing Psycho at the TR, and was terrified to walk to the bus stop at the market to get the bus home to GX.

On the Theatre Royal Onwards web site there is a link to pearl and dean adds from yester year.
