John Travolta & Olivia Newton John. 8"x10" Lobby Card Set.
All these cards are in near mint to mint condition. What is a lobby card? A lobby card is an 11x14 or 8x10 inch (landscape orientated) "poster" printed on heavy stock featuring a scene from the film advertised. 8x10 inch cards are also called stills or Front-Of-House cards.
They briefly summarize the movie in a series of captioned scenes. Usually there are 8 cards in a set, however there are also sets that have more or less cards. The number of cards in a set can vary from as few as three to as many as 22 or more.
Lobby cards first appeared in the early 1910s. During the silent-era lobby cards were often nothing more than black and white or duotone stills which were eventually replaced by hand-tinted scenes and in the 1920s by full-color lobby cards.
These cards were designed for display in a theatre's lobby or foyer with the intention of promoting the movie. Studios stopped producing lobby card sets for the American market sometime in the mid-1980's. After the mid-1980's, the only lobby card sets produced were for International releases.
