TWIN CITY LINES
In 1953, Minnesota Amusement
Company, operator of the State Theatre in Minneapolis and the Riviera Theater
in St. Paul had an idea for promotion of the new 3-D movie "Rodeo."
They put stills in every window of a chartered car, along with banners
on the side, and ran it all over the Twin Cities (or at least where there
were still tracks.) The car is shown here in front of the State Theater
on Hennepin Avenue and 8th Street in downtown Minneapolis.
