Hello Friday and friends! It's been a good end of the week in my part of the world - how about you? Another great 5 for FRIDAY line-up today! Beginning with the ART ILLUSTRATION featured today which was a Lobby Card  for "The Philadelphia Story" starring Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James (Jimmy) Stewart. I didn't know exactly what a Lobby Card was so I did the Google thing and here's the definition according to gobacktothepast: "Lobby cards are promotional photographs printed on heavy card stock paper.  They were meant to be displayed in the massive lobbies of movie palaces before the film came out, working alongside posters to promote coming attractions.  This gave audiences an early look at the film's cinematic grandeur, albeit in still form." Now we know what Lobby cards are/were! I haven't been to a movie theater in quite a while, especially the "movie palace places" with massive lobbies and beautiful railings leading up the stairs to the balcony, elegant lighting and ornate carpeting (yes, there were actually 2 in Billings, Montana where I grew up - The Fox Theater and the Babcock Theater) - but I'm guessing Lobby Cards are no longer -- anywhere. Totally looks like they were a super cool advertisement for everyone-get-excited and get-ready for-the next coming cinematic attraction! STEPHANIE'S CHIC ON THE CHEAP never disappoints with her creative ideas and sharing them with all of us!
