1925 Movie Magazine

Title

1925 Movie Magazine

Description

Sample pages from a Finkelstein and Ruben Movie Magazine publication that contains advertisements, movie industry articles, and theater schedules.

The Movie Magazine is a phenomenon that rose in popularity in the 1920s and evolved to become a publication that was meant more to entertain rather than inform. Early stages of the Movie Magazine featured articles explaining the mechanics of the movie industry, but going into the late '20s and early 30s fictionalized versions of films became the bulk of the content. These later magazines were predecessors for today's reader digests.

The above example wavers between the earlier versions of magazines and the later ones, containing both entertaining and informative content.
