The Art of the Sell – Star Snacks

These posts celebrate the movie trailers, movie posters, commercials, print ads, and other promotional material that stand as their own works of art. 

As we edge towards the final days of this strange movie summer, free of blockbusters and with a sudden, forced revival of drive-in culture, let us take a moment to celebrate one of the ways in which the outposts of outdoor entertainment historically created a better experience. The song might have been crummy and the picture soft and susceptible to the elements, but drive-ins had the best ads running before and between films. I long to bolt across the stars on the sturdy craft Salt Ship No. 7.
