Reply toCustomers Post: A great photo, but I don't think those are the girls who work behind the concession stand. A client is opening a 1930's-look Movie Theatre and wants it to be authentic. Thanks, tho.

The picture is from a book that I have in my collection. The information about the picture indicated there were employees of the movie theater staff. Since I did not take the picture I only relied on the information in the book. As always the acceptance is your choice.

Thanks for using Just answer and hopefully another expert will come up with something that suits your needs better.

You are indeed be correct about the concession stand worker's picture. My book did indeed have the incorrect information. Upon further investigation I have found; It seems that movie theaters did not have concession stands in the 1930s They were an addition added years later. That information can be verified by clicking here and clicking here and several other web sites.

Pictures of vintage theaters can be found in the links below.

The photo you sent was NOT of concession workers.
It is obviously a photo of the "showgirls" holding long trumpets with flags hanging, who usually announced the change of acts.

You are correct as I explained in my last post above which I have added below.

Since there were no concession stands in the theaters in 1930 there would have been no consession workers. Food was not allowed in the theaters of that time.
