Royal Ontario Museum shows its love for Indian Cinema!

Last week I got a chance to check out the ROM’s exhibit of Bollywood Cinema Showcards. This exhibit is from the private collection of Angela Hartwick, who when visiting India saw art in old cinema showcards that someone had thrown away.

These cinema showcards were painted photographs made into posters that were used to advertise the Hindi films from the 50’s, which typically would be thrown out once the films disappeared from theatres.
