Coming Attraction (2001)

Knowing of my interest in ephemera, my granduncle and grandaunt gave me some booklets they collected while moviegoing in the 1960s.  Back then, at every film, they would distribute these little books, printed on flimsy paper with gaudy colors and complete with libretto and still images.  When i was growing up, I went to the theatres in NYC Chinatown, but they only handed out a one colour leaflet.  What i remember most was how, like fallen leaves, they were strewn on the ground.  Well, i didn’t keep any of them, either.  I never would have imagined those theatres would be gone.  Only one remains,and soon that will be a memory as well.  And my granduncle died last year, too.  This little book is for all of those lost dreams.
