Screengrabs below are from THE MASK and I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN. The ad is from Milwaukee Wisconsin ( October 29, 1966 ).

Newspaper ad above is for SPIKED HEELS AND BLACK NYLONS and VARI-A-TEASE ( from Youngstown Ohio, 1967 )... Screengrabs below are from SPIKED HEELS AND BLACK NYLONS.

Newspaper ad above is for RUN SWINGER RUN and NUDE SCRAPBOOK ( from Nashua New Hampshire, July 12, 1967 ).

During the seventies, I would frequently go dumpster-diving with friends. Back then, many theaters threw away tons of movie memorabilia. I don't remember what the hell happened to all that stuff.

These days, it's a rare occurrence to find a theater with double or triple features... or swag.

I really miss watching two or three films in a row. Sure, you can do it at home, but we all know it's a completely different experience.
