FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #22
The First Lady of Neato Coolville just found a nice artifact for our autograph and movie theater collection. It's a Bob Cummings signed 1988 Fulton Cinema ticket for the 1942 movie Kings Row.
Before becoming famous from Winston Churchill's historic 1946 "Iron Curtain" speech, Fulton gained notoriety from author Henry Bellamann as he based his 1940 novel Kings Row on the small Missouri town. In 1942 the book was adapted into a movie and starred Ronald Reagan, Ann Sheridan and Robert (Bob) Cummings. In 1988 for Fulton's Kingdom Days parade Bob Cummings was an honored guest and the Fulton Cinema had a special screening of Kings Row.
Below is a recent photo of the Fulton Cinema, which originally opened as the Fulton Theatre in 1928 and became the Fulton Cinema in 1980. It's now in the process of becoming an Arts Council Theatre.
I dug this Fulton Theatre ticket out of my collection for today's post.
