SPECK’S ORIENT-CINEMA (ca. 1916)
Vintage original 27 x 39″ (69.5 x 99.6 cm.) one sheet poster, Switzerland. Poster art by costume and commercial designer Ernst Deutsch-Dryden (1883-1938) for an elegant new movie theater in Zürich, with this image giving us well-dressed clientele watching a Western movie, almost certainly a US import. During this period there was a push in Zürich, as in all large European and American cities, to build lavish new cinemas to accommodate the constantly growing public and to screen all the feature films which were now being regularly made.
This poster was designed to promote the opening of this movie theater. Conserved on linen, with no extra borders to the linen, with slight touch-ups at fold lines and edges, NEAR FINE.
