Thanks for posting some great posters.One in particular brought back some some memories. In 1947 one of our theaters brought back Dracula and Frankenstein in a double bill. I had not seen either at the time so this was a real bargain. Thirty five cents admission if memory serves me.To this day Im still a big fan of classic horror!
