Schine's Colonia Theatre Handbill - August 1951

I love stuff like this.  Vintage movie paper from local theaters promoting Alice in Wonderland.
This particular handbill is from Norwich, NY from a theater called the Colonia.  It features a cover sporting the Alice 6-sheet art promoting its engagement Aug 5 - 6 - 7.  Upcoming shows later that week include The Mummy's Tomb, Dead Man's Eyes, Best of the Badmen, Sealed Cargo, and Rich, Young and Pretty.
But the coolest thing:  this theater still exists!  I love it!  This week they are showing Arthur, Paul and Despicable Me.  Thank goodness at least some of these old small town theaters are alive and well.

I like handbills and ephemera like this too. And how amazing that the little theater is still open for business (and you found a pic of it). That is cool!
