16 Vintage Movie Theater Etiquette Posters

The Library of Congress has a fascinating series of vintage movie theater “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 this brilliant collection of etiquette posters below and I think we might need some of them back in our theaters and check out the Library of Congress for additional information.
