Funny Girl charity invite Toronto 1968

Recently was given a treasure trove of old cinema books and as I was flipping through one of them, this fell out.



And below is the Odeon Fairlawn Theatre on Yonge Street, north of Lawrence Avenue.  Notice the Yonge streetcar tracks that are visible in the foreground.

Cannes 1975

And just stumbled upon the 1975 Cannes poster. Was Jodorowsky the art designer that year?


Cannes 1976

My wife and I saw this poster in our favourite pizza place in Cannes back in May (add Papa Nino's to your tour guides) for the 1976 edition of the festival. Amazing! Anyone have a spare one kicking around? Found one of eBay for over $300...
