Once upon a time, we had this medium called the "newspaper". It was printed on something called "paper". And inside you'd find "articles" and "photographs" (You may need to Google some of this stuff, okay?). In those long-forgotten days, people actually *went* to see a movie in this big place called a "movie theatre", which took out tiny ads like this (ads that, shockingly, *just sat there*! NO animation! Can you believe it?) to tell people what would be seen on the "screens", which, contrary to mythology, were *not* made of silver.

It's pretty much retro here. Yes, we still have the tiny ads in our newspapers to advertise our movies, but since, statistically, attendance has fallen off, display ads like these are giving way to just lists of showtimes at the multiplex.

And bear in mind that none of the movies displayed here is all that recent. Most are 80s productions, which means this is trying to appeal to that boomer and GenX renter.
