16 Vintage Movie Theatre Etiquette Posters from 1912

 

The Library of Congress has a fascinating series of vintage movie theatre “etiquette” posters from 1912. At the time, films were silent as movies with sound didn’t become prevalent until the late 1920s. Sadly, a September 2013 report by the United States Library of Congress announced that a total of 70% of American silent films are believed to be completely lost. [source]

Enjoy the collection below and check out the Library of Congress for additional information. And mind those hats people!
