Batiste Madalena

In the early 1920s, George Eastman (of Eastman Kodak) decided he was going to put up a showcase theater in his hometown of Rochester, New York. Hel built the Eastman Theatre, one of the most elaborate theatres of the time. When it was time to open his theater, he decided that the regular advertising material that was being distributed to other theaters was not good enough for HIS theater, so he commissioned a local artist, Batiste Madalena, to create all of his posters.

From 1924 until 1928, Batiste created over 1400 fantastic posters especially for the Eastman Theater. Growing tired of the tehater, Eastman sold it to a theater chain in 1928 and the standard 'studio-issued' posters began being used.

The new management literally threw hundreds and hundreds of these beautiful creations in the trash. Only a few hundred were saved.

We are compiling a list of the ones that we can find that were saved. We will link them as we get images.
