Offered here is the original 1956 Greenport Theatre poster. The vintage window cards are composed in wood type then printed in small numbers on heavy card stock. Very few originals remain as they were considered disposable. They are the standard size, 14 × 22 inches, to fit displays that were installed in the theatre, in nearby restaurants, and on exterior walls around town. They were inserted into these standard frames and manually replaced whenever the movie changed.

Framed size is 17½ × 25¼.
